Main opposition New Democracy (ND) spokesperson Maria Spyraki in an interview with Parapolitika newspaper on Saturday referred to the need for general elections in order Greece to proceed without any backsliding.

"The crucial for Greece is to proceed" she said adding that "we are alone before the challenges and we do not only have an enhanced supervision by our creditors but also the stricter eye of the markets which will judge our performances".

Spyraki underlined that elections should be held immediately "because the country is crawling and the extended crisis of trust sets at risk the Greek people's sacrifices".
