Papandreou Says Referendum Will Confirm Greece as Euro Member

November 01, 2011

Nov. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou told his ministers in Athens today that his plans for a referendum would confirm Greece as a member of the European Union and the euro area and send a clear message.

“The dilemma isn’t ‘this or another government’,” Papandreou told his ministers in Athens today, according to an e-mailed transcript of his statements. “The dilemma is ‘yes or no to the loan accord’, ‘yes or no to Europe’, ‘yes or no to the euro’.”

Papandreou said resorting to early elections would be “shirking responsibility”.
