ATHENS — Former prime minister Tzannis Tzannetakis, who led a short-lived coalition government in 1989 while Greece was rocked by corruption scandals, has died. He was 82.
Mr. Tzannetakis’s office said he died in an Athens hospital yesterday, but gave no other details.
During his three-month tenure as prime minister, Mr. Tzannetakis headed a coalition government that included his New Democracy party and the Greek Communist Party.
Lawmakers from the coalition parties indicted Andreas Papandreou, former Socialist prime minister, on corruption charges. He was cleared.
