Greek Government Hasn’t Set Date for Election, Minister Says

Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos’s interim government hasn’t set a date for elections and will adopt more fiscal measures if it’s in the country’s best interest, Minister of State George Stavropoulos said.

“Nowhere in policy statements has there been a mention of an election date, nor has the prime minister ever spoken of a specific date for elections,” Stavropoulos said today at a briefing in Athens. “Any government that has secured a vote of confidence can govern, as long as it maintains that confidence.”
