Attacking ND for the obstacles it places in specific structural objectives of his ministry, health minister Andreas Loverdos requested to proceed immediately with the priorities of the government and to avoid getting "stuck in inertia."  He explained that "the new government is here for a limited period and a special purpose. This does not mean inaction. We cannot afford delays and consultation cannot be the cancellation of operations. We need a radical change of the State and Papademos’ government must pave the way for the next government. Time is of the essence." 

Finally, he said the aim is the recovery of the country and its dignity and that "we only have a few months before us to do what has not been done in many decades, to deliver a country that will be able to change itself. Prosperity must be returned to the people."
