Main opposition New Democracy is fully prepared for general elections, which will be 'soon', party secretary Andreas Lykourentzos said in a newspaper interview appearing Saturday. In an interview with the weekend edition of Eleftheros Typos newspaper, Lykourentzos said that "the government has collapsed in the Greek people's consciense for some time now, under the weight of its lies, its flippant promises and the tragic failure of its policy".

"The time has come for the people to speak," he added.

Lykourentzos also said that, 20 months after the last general elections, ND was proving the citizens' credible option for the country's governance, adding that "in the next elections, which will be soon, it will be the top party with a self-sufficient parliamentary majoridy".
