El-Erian Says Greek Referendum ‘Is Major Political Gamble’

Nov. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Pacific Investment Management Co. Chief Executive Officer Mohamed El-Erian said the decision by Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou to call a referendum on the European Union’s latest accord on the nation’s financing “is material and consequential.”

“In addition to constituting a major political gamble, the run-up will put the European Central Bank, EU and International Monetary Fund in a tough position regarding disbursements to Greece,” El-Erian said in an e-mail today.

He also expressed concern that the EU deal “appears to be unraveling from many sides.”
