Most probably, what LAOS head, Yiorgos Karatzaferis meant is that he favours the much discussed extended tenure of the interim government.

Karatzaferis made the above mentioned statement existing the premier’s office after a get together with Lucas Papademos in order to get informed of the results of his talks and meetings, in Brussels.

“In my opinion, even if he did not exist as a choice, we would have to make him up as he has a deep knowledge, stance and cooperation with Europe”, said Karatzaferis about Papademos and added that, “Europe is like a fire-place. Far from it you are cold, too close to it you get burned.”
