What impact will new elections in Greece have?

The BBC's Business Editor Robert Peston has taken a look at what effect a new round of elections in Greece could have on the markets and the Eurozone.

He told BBC World's Lucy Hocking that "most people will see this election as a poll on whether Greece should leave the euro".

In elections on 6 May, a majority of Greek voters backed parties opposed to austerity plans demanded by the EU and IMF in return for two bailouts.

European leaders say that they will cut off funding for Greece if it rejects the bailout agreed in March.
