The heads of the main parties in Greece will meet later for talks on forming a technocratic government.
Failure to reach agreement will see fresh elections next month that observers suggest would see a better turnout for Syriza, the radical leftist party.
Syriza, which came second in the election over a week ago, has said it will tear up a deal Athens struck with creditors for last year's bail-out.
This scenario would see Greece default on its huge debt leading to its exit from the eurozone.
Meanwhile, there is mounting concern across Europe over the political instability in Greece.
Speaking in Brussels last night, the Eurogroup President, Jean Claude Juncker, said Greece must stick with the terms of its bailout.
He said he would work with whatever government comes into power in Greece.
