Samaras calls for interim government

Greek conservative opposition leader has called for an interim government that will guide the country through a national election.

?The new government that will emerge from this election will unite the people… so that the country can come out of the crisis,? Antonis Samaras said Thursday, after calling for a transitional government.

Samaras once again dismissed the government’s call for a referendum on a new bailout deal for the debt-laden country as ?blackmail.?

However, he said, the Parliament must rubber stamp last week’s Brussels agreement to make way for the next slice of EU/IMF funds.
