Alright, word on the wires is that a Greek government coalition is going to be affirmed today.

A New Democracy spokesperson — according to Bloomberg — says that Antonis Samaras will be sworn in as Prime Minister today.

This ends a tiny bit of uncertainty about whether this past Sunday’s election would result in a government. It will.
