Main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras met Friday morning with visiting European Commissioner for the Internal Market and Services Michel Barnier.

Samaras outlined ND's positions on how Greece can exit the crisis, and told Barnier that the Memorandum was not the only option, adding that specific measures that will lead to growth are needed.

"We discussed the EU internal market and our own (Greece's) problem," Samaras told reporters after the meeting, reiterating that "this crisis has proved that the Memorandum was not the only option, and it was not a solution. The only road to exit the crisis an hour earlier is the road of development," he stressed.

Replying to press questions, Samaras said unemployment in Greece is a "big weight", and stressed that two in five shops have gone out of business.
