ATHENS/PARIS - The EU gave Greece 24 hours on Sunday to explain how it will form a unity government to enact a bailout agreement, and Prime Minister George Papandreou said he did not want to lead it, the closest he has come to meeting opposition calls to go.

Papandreou and his opponents have been scrambling to hammer out a deal for a unity government ahead of a meeting by finance ministers of euro countries on Monday, to show that Greece is serious about taking steps needed to stave off bankruptcy.

The sides have been deadlocked on how long the unity cabinet would serve before elections, and who would lead it.

Papandreou said no deal had yet been struck with the conservative opposition, despite calls from Brussels for urgent progress on backing the 130 billion euro rescue package.
