    Prime Minister Costas Simitis said that the national interest would determine when parliamentary elections were held.

    Speaking in the western town of Egheo on Saturday evening, Simitis said: "I would never agree to take the country to elections on an opportunistic basis."

    Outlining the government's successes, Simitis told a rally that Greece now ranked among the world's 20 most developed countries.

    ND media spokesman Aris Spiliotopoulos said in a statement that the government's request to the European Union for a revaluation was geared to improving its position before national elections.
