Greece delays privatization chiefs' departure

ATHENS (Reuters) - The Greek finance ministry said on Thursday it wants the leadership of its privatization agency to stay in position for another week.

Greece's new left-wing government last week asked the heads of the state privatization agency to resign after halting some planned state asset sales agreed under the international bailout program.

"They have been asked to remain in their positions until next week," a statement said. "This is enough to deal with pending issues that have to do mainly with submitting binding bids."
