"I imagine it will be somewhere then,» Kapsis said. There has been widespread media speculation that the elections, delayed from February, would be held in early May but officials have been wary about commenting openly about dates. Papademos's technocratic coalition government, formed in November and including both the Socialist PASOK and conservative New Democracy parties, had a narrow mandate to complete bailout and debt cut talks and then hold elections as soon as possible. Elections had been set for mid-February, mainly under pressure from New Democracy, which is leading in opinion polls. The conservatives agreed to push back the date after it became clear that Papademos needed more time to complete negotiations on the EU/IMF bailout, Greece's second since 2010.
