ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece aims for a deal with its international creditors and has no plans for a referendum or early elections, the country’s interior minister said on Wednesday.
“We are working towards an honorable compromise,” Nikos Voutsis told Mega TV. “An immediate recourse to a referendum or elections is not in our plans right now.”
EU paymaster Germany suggested on Monday that Greece might need a referendum to approve painful economic reforms on which its creditors are insisting.
Cash-strapped Athens has been locked in talks for months with its euro zone partners and the International Monetary Fund on a cash-for-reforms deal.
