  • [01] PM: ND led country to over-borrowing

    (ANA-MPA) -- Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou on Saturday promised that his government will "make every effort so that people not responsible for the economic (ANA-MPA) crisis won't pay", speaking to supporters on the Dodecanese island of Rhodes, a day after announcing Athens' request for activation of a euro-area-IMF economic support mechanism.

    [02] Samaras: PASOK drove Greece to IMF

    (ANA-MPA) -- With accusations against ruling PASOK for lying and deliberately driving the country into the arms of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), main opposition New Democracy leader Antonis Samaras on Sunday said the ruling party was "fully responsible for what happened and what will happen from now on". He was speaking in Kalamata, southern Greece during an ND conference on health. (ANA-MPA)

    "We handed over to PASOK a deficit crisis and PASOK is now handing Greece over to the IMF with a borrowing crisis," he said, noting that PASOK had not been forced into this course of action as it claimed but had chosen it and made it unavoidable through its actions.

    [03] FinMin: Rescue package in May

    WASHINGTON (ANA-MPA / A. Ellis) -- Negotiations on the framework of a rescue package for Greece are likely to be concluded by early May, Greek Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou said here on Sunday. He was speaking during a press conference held at the headquarters of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) after his meeting with IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

    Papaconstantinou stressed that the framework will be a three-year programme for the stabilisation of the Greek economy based on the strictest terms, which will be implemented. (ANA-MPA)
