“In the present circumstances, the Greek people could not consider the option of general elections even in their worst nightmares,” Citizens' Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis on Monday, stressed after meeting with a visiting European official.
He said that this is a crucial week considering that the financial support package for Greece will be ratified in European parliaments.
“The obligation and commitment undertaken by the government is to lead the country out of the crisis,” he said, adding that “determination, speedy implementation of the policies approved by the Greek Parliament and consistency in meeting our commitments and goals are a prerequisite.”
