Government official: Greek PM Tsipras to resign on Thursday

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will submit his resignation to the country's president later Thursday to clear the way for early elections on Sept. 20, a government official said.
Tspiras, elected in January, is expected to make a televised state address on Thursday evening.
Tsipras effectively lost his parliamentary majority after a rebellion by hardliners in his Syriza party who oppose a bailout agreement struck with international lenders.
