Greek political leaders have yet to find common ground over an unpopular bailout and a coalition deal may not be struck until later in the week, the leader of a small moderate leftist party said on Tuesday.
"There will be a government but I don't know if it will be formed by tonight. I believe we will have reached an agreement by the end of the week," Democratic Left leader Fotis Kouvelis told reporters.
"There are still some outstanding issues regarding the programme of the government and the terms (of the bailout) from which Greece must disengage."
Kouvelis' party is expected to support a coalition of the conservatives, who won Sunday's election, and the Socialists.
"It is incomprehensible and unacceptable, it was a mistake," Renzi told Italian radio.
The hold up also threatens to torpedo next week's planned visit to Brussels by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to sign the deal.
