Greek Interior, Public Administration and Decentralization Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos stated from Crete that the general elections will be held as scheduled.
According to Greek news agency ANA-MPA, when asked by reporters about the date of the general elections, Pavlopoulos said: "I do not talk about general elections, because the general elections will be held as scheduled."
"But in every electoral confrontation, and I stress this, I do not insinuate anything, I do not announce anything, I do not speak about elections. What counts is the proposal one makes, one's contribution, to be consistent with what one has announced," said the minister.
The general elections are formally slated for March 2008. Recently the major opposition part PASOK leader George Papandreou called for an earlier election.
Pavlopoulos was in Crete to represent the government on the 63rd anniversary of the Anogia village destruction by the German occupation troops.
