Democratic Alliance party president Dora Bakoyannis on Thursday called for snap elections, suggesting that they be held immediately after the state budget is ratified by Parliament.
In a press conference on the sidelines of her tour of the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF), she stressed that her newly formed party will run in the elections independently and added that she will not reject post-election cooperation, pointing out that one-party governments will be a thing of the past.
Bakoyannis lashed out at Prime Minister George Papandreou and main opposition New Democracy (ND) party leader Antonis Samaras, saying that the first has failed and the other resorts to populism.
