Moscovici calls on Greeks to commit to European path

European Commissioner for Economic and Monetary Affairs Pierre Moscovici called on Monday on the Greek people to use their votes to keep the country on the road to reform, although he refused to comment on the possibility of a change in government in Athens.

“Through this democratic process, the Greek people will once again decide on their future. A strong commitment to Europe and broad support among the Greek voters and political leaders for the necessary growth-friendly reform process will be essential for Greece to thrive again within the euro area,» the French official said in the European Commission’s first reaction to the plan for a snap poll in Greece on January 25.
