Government spokesman Giorgos Petalotis on Monday stated that Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou “has described everything that has taken place in Luxemburg” and underlined that “the medium-term Stability Programme is used by the government as a guideline to lead us out of the crisis”.
He underlined that the efforts made by Greece have been acknowledged, adding that the government efforts should continue in an accelerated pace. He also stressed that cool-headedness, calm and determination are necessary to get out of the crisis, characterizing as “scenarios” the talk on the utilisation of public real property as collateral for loans.

Petalotis repeated that holding snap elections to “legitimise a salvation policy for the country” is out of the question.
