With two weeks left before snap elections in Greece, parties have submitted requests to participate in the poll. Our correspondent Helena Smith reports from Athens:
It’s official: Athens’ Supreme Court has this afternoon received submissions from 19 parties – and five coalitions – to take part in fresh elections on September 20.
Mining company Glencore has held onto its share price gains right to the close on London markets. Investors liked its plans for a shake-up to slash its debts and mitigate the effects of falling commodity prices and the shares closed up 7% at 131.8p. That followed an all-time low for the shares in the previous session on Friday.
