Prime Minister George Papandreou once again ruled out all prospect of early elections as he emerged from a lengthy meeting at ruling PASOK's headquarters on Monday.

"I have made this clear 30 times. We will complete our four years. We have two and a half years left to complete our work," the prime minister stressed.

Referring to an announcement about plans to step up the privatisation programme and utilise state real estate, unveiled during the last press conference by EU-IMF officials in Athens, Papandreou stressed according to information obtained by the ANA-MPA that "there is no question of selling Greek land".
