Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras might call a press conference on Thursday or Friday to announce early elections, a Forex Live report says.
According to Forex Live author Ryan Littlestone claiming exclusive sources, Tsipras will call the press to speak about the stalled negotiations on the bailout program review and “threaten” with snap elections.
So far the government spokesperson has not announced a press conference.

“Wow, I’ve got an exclusive sources story for you.
According to chatter in Greece, Tsipras could call a presser either today or tomorrow to give his latest views on the ongoing bailout negotiations, with strong focus on talking about Germany, and the feeling is he’s not going to have anything pleasant to say. It’s also being touted that there’s a risk that he either threatens or actually calls a general election.
While Tsipras threatening new elections isn’t anything new, the rumor mill is cranking up over this.
At this point we should treat this info purely as rumor until it’s confirmed, and while I don’t often trust rumors, I have a good deal of trust in the source for this one.
I’ll update you if I hear anymore.”
The Greek government spokesperson denied such allegations.
