PM's schedule for week; gov't again dismisses snap election prospect

Prime Minister George Papandreou on Tuesday will have consecutive meetings with representatives of productive classes, ahead of his visit and address at the annual Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) next month.
On Wednesday, Papandreou will chair a Cabinet meeting expected to focus on a draft law for referendums in the country.
Meanwhile, the Greek PM is scheduled to travel to Paris on Thursday to participate in a Contact Group for Libya summit, which has been convened by French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Moreover, government spokesman Ilias Mosialos again dismissed speculation that snap elections are looming, given a string of high-profile statements by ministers on the possibility over the past few days.  He added that the government desires a consensus, but not a status of co-governance.
