Greek PM says early elections are not the right solution for the country’s problems

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou said that he has no plans to call early elections and vowed to press ahead with the government’s reform agenda.

Papandreou acknowledged that the reforms had provoked public discontent and would continue to do so, while acknowledging that the government had made mistakes in its program.

“I am not considering [calling early elections], because there is no reason to,” Papandreou said.

“The citizens want to see change, not elections.”

“Yes, we will make mistakes; yes, there will be obstacles that will delay us, but we know how we must proceed. By convincing people of he justice of our reforms,” he added.
