Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras, on Saturday chaired a meeting with Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis to discuss an upcoming Eurogroup meeting on Monday, the day after Greek elections.
Leaving the meeting at the government headquarters at the Maximos Mansion, Hardouvelis commented that the ECB’s decision for quantitative easing was positive but added that “the troika must come to Athens immediately and conclude the negotiation.”
Earlier, the prime minister appeared confident about the election results during his visit to the ND campaign office in Syntagma Square, Athens, Greece, just hours before polling stations were due to open.
Samaras spoke with voters and members of the party, stressing that ND was doing well and that ‘undecided’ 14 percent of the electorate “are with us.” There was also keen interest on the part of the foreign media and Samaras had many questions from foreign journalists.
On Sunday, the prime minister will travel to Messinia in order to vote in his home town of Pylos.
