The main opposition New Democracy (ND) party referred again to the public property utilisation issue accusing the IMF-ECB-EU "troika" representatives of "insulting" the Greek people with their stance.

ND spokesman Yiannis Mihelakis on Monday reminded that party leader Antonis Samaras said on July 7, 2010, during the presentation of the ND programme, that public property can be exploited and not be sold out.

He underlined that ND had suggested the exploitation of the public property to help the country get out of the memorandum and referring to the government plan he said that its purpose is to serve the memorandum and the country’s creditors.

As regards the likelihood of snap elections, Mihelakis stated that ND is “not afraid and is ready for them at any time”.
