The government is not considering elections, says spokeswoman

The government is not considering elections and talk of elections at this point is not useful, government spokeswoman Olga Gerovasili said in a statement.

“The election talk which is promoted in the past few days is neither useful, nor does it reflect reality. At the center of the government planning is, at this time, the achievement of an agreement with the institutions, as well as the next day, whose first and main objective is the implementation of the commitment of the recent Eurozone Summit to tackle [Greece’s] debt,” she said and added “there’s no though of elections.” 

Gerovasili also noted that the government is planning its next initiatives to “stabilize the economy, restore the sense of calm and normalcy in society and to finally promote the necessary reforms in the political system and for the operation of the state.”
