Greek Opposition Says Papandreou’s Referendum Choice ’Reckless’

November 01, 2011

Oct. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou’s plans to hold a referendum on the a new financing package agreed at a European Union summit last week are “reckless” and put Greece’s EU membership at risk, lead opposition New Democracy party spokesman Yiannis Michelakis said.

Papandreou “has tossed Greece’s future in Europe in the air like a coin,” Michelakis said in an e-mailed statement from ND’s Athens offices today. “He is dangerous and must go. There is a solution: elections now. It’s the safest ‘refendum’.”
