During the Christmas holidays, Papademos held talks with the French and German leaders but also with the IMF and ECB heads, and they were all very pessimistic. If Greece fails to comply with what’s been dictated by them all, then the scenario will be endlessly bleak and the omens bad. This message was mainly destined for New Democracy and LAOS party leaders, Antonis Samaras and Yiorgos Karatzaferis respectively.
However, when it comes to George Papandreou, the “menu” is different as the main problem is the succession process which might cause further upheaval to the already shaky political stage.
In any case, Papademos will tell the others that as far as he is concerned, he will do everything he has promised to fulfil as long as they support him, too, instead of trying to backstab him in order to accomplish their own political goals.
