    She said that the government's claim that the people back the Memorandum "is not true" and, on the contrary, the great majority of working people feel anger and indignation and have lost any confidence in had in the two mainstream parties -- ruling PASOK and main opposition New Democracy (ND) -- that alternate in the government.

    Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou on Friday met with the heads of the all-important EU-ECB-IMF "troika" delegation here, for talks on the troika‚s interim report regarding the course of the Greek economy.

    The meeting focused on progress of a majors reforms programme, including the urgent restructuring loss-making and debt-ridden Hellenic Rail (OSE) and other state-run mass transit companies, deregulation of so-called "closed professions", privatisations and strategic moves, i.e. mergers and buy-outs, in the domestic banking system.

    The two sides also discussed ways to boost lagging tax revenues and particularly efforts to combat large-scale tax evasion, along with actions to contain spending vis-?-vis hospital procurements, pension funds and local government authorities.

    After the meeting with the troika, the Greek minister met with Germany‚s federal Finance and Technology Deputy Minister Bernd Pfaffenbach.
