Greek President to see term through, to March 2015, his office says

The office of President Karolos Papoulias issued a statement on Friday, declaring that the president would see out his term in full in a bid to douse widespread speculation in the media about a possible early departure and calls by lefist SYRIZA for the 84-year-old statesman to clarify his intentions.

"The President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias will exhaust his term to the end, until March 2015," the statement said.

On Thursday, Papoulias expressed his hope that Greece would make good on its pledges to the country's troika of international creditors and begin its recovery in earnest. “Let’s get through the crisis and boot out the troika," he told reporters.
