Greek Finance Minister Says Elections at End of Feb


ATHENS (MNI) - Greek finance minister Evangelos Venizelos said today that early national elections will take place after February end 2012, when the negotiations for the new bailout plan are concluded.

Venizelos spoke after the closing statement of prime minister George Papandreou, which is unprecedented. However, it is the second time in a row Venizelos took the stand after Papandreou which indicates he will be playing a leading role in the formation of the new coalition government.

A senior government source told Market News International that Venizelos, in exchange for pressuring reluctant MPs to support the confidence vote, will be named as the head of the new coalition government.

Greek PM Expected to Step Down, Form Coalition Govt


ATHENS (MNI) - Greece's prime minister said he will be visiting the president of the republic tomorrow, to inform him of his decision to form a coalition government of a broader consensus, hinting that he will be stepping down after he wins the confidence vote in parliament.

Papandreou did not name his successor who will carry on the negotiations for the new bailout plan with the EU and the IMF, but rumours say he will suggest current vice president and finance minister Evangelos Venizelos.

However, it is not clear whether the main opposition conservative party, New Democracy , will agree with such choice. Its MPs left the room during Papandreou's speech and are expected to return in time for the vote.
