ND Leader Samaras Strongly Disagrees with EC-ECB-IMF Memorandum

On Tuesday, main opposition New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras again rejected government overtures for his party’s consensus for the eagerly expected and new batch of urgent privatizations.  Speaking immediately after the conclusion of a meeting with Prime Minister George Papandreou, he stated:
“I will not agree with the proven erroneous recipe of the (EC-ECB-IMF) Memorandum,” he said, adding that the government is subjecting the people to new sacrifices without any prospects, “as past mistakes are merely being repeated.”
“Society demands consensus in order to change (the country’s) direction and not consensus for the leadership so we’ll remain stuck in the same process”.
The euro fell briefly and safe haven German bond futures rose after his statement.
The EU’s top economic official Olli Rehn warned Greece would get no further aid unless there was broad political consensus, as was the case in Ireland and Portugal.
According to sources, the lack of consensus brings the possibility of snap elections closer as the government faces severe criticism from inside and outside.
