  • [01] Gov't on Eurozone entry, early elections

  • [01] Gov't on Eurozone entry, early elections

    Government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos on Monday dismissed speculation about early elections, triggered by a statement made by Finance Minister George Alogoskoufis, underlining that the general elections would be held at the end of the government's four-year term.

    He also commented the statements made by Alogoskoufis about Greece's entry into the Eurozone, stressing that the present government "served the goal of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) entry faithfully".

    At the same time, he underlined that "it was clear" that the true fiscal situation at the time Greece joined EMU was different from that which PASOK tried to present.

    "Due to the hidden deficits of PASOK governments we are today obliged to make great efforts. We must not forget that the audit carried out by Community services showed a series of errors, shortfalls and concealment that were the result of PASOK's policy," the spokesman noted.

    He also stressed that if New Democracy had been a government at the time, "we would have on no account created false impressions about the economy and we would have clearly brought the country into EMU."
