Papandreou Welcomes Opposition Party’s Support of Oct 26 Pact

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou welcomed support from the main opposition New Democracy party for the Oct. 26 financing agreement for Greece, government spokesman Elias Mosialos told reporters in Athens today.

The prime minister had taken the decision to hold a referendum on December 4 as the only possible solution because there was no consensus in Greece at the time, he said.
