"Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou said he will form a new cabinet on Thursday and seek a vote of confidence from his fractious Socialist party to see through a harsh austerity bill, the target of major protests. The move followed a Papandreou offer to step down and form a unity government with opposition parties, a gesture he abandoned after the conservative New Democracy demanded Athens renegotiate its year-old, 110-billion-euro international bailout."
