Government vice-president Theodoros Pangalos on Wednesday ruled out the prospect of general elections in the case that the Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) carried out its threat to resign from Parliament as a party.
According to Pangalos, this would only lead to elections being held on a local level in the constituencies affected and only if there was a resignation of all LAOS MPs and their replacements.

He expressed grave doubts about whether LAOS leader George Karatzaferis would actually go through with this action, however, pointing out that it would not help anything.

Pangalos used this opportunity to criticise the actions of demonstrators on Tuesday night, who prevented MPs from leaving Parliament and forced them to go out of a side exit into the National Gardens, saying that what would help would be the unobstructed arrival and departure of MPs in Parliament.
