Government spokesman George Petalotis said on Thursday "there is no question of elections being called. The national interest is leading us precisely to the contrary. The situation and the Greek citizens do not want experiments. Whoever wants elections can come forward and ask for them," while at the same time speaking of "scenarios that are coming from various places for the same political reasons."

The spokesman further said the government's effort is focused on the creation of a Greece that will be changed and rid of the pathogenies of the past, while as regards consensus he said "we were calling for it from the very beginning even before the crisis heightened."
