Elections in April, no reshuffle, says gov’t spokesman

Government spokesman Pantelis Kapsis has ruled out the possibility of interim prime minister Lucas Papademos carrying out a reshuffle at the moment and suggested that elections would probably be held in April.

Speaking to Skai TV, Kapsis played down recent rumors that Papademos would shake up his Cabinet in a bid to create better cooperation between the three parties involved in the coalition. He also said it would be ?dangerous? to hold elections now.

?What is important at the moment is to support the government and for all three parties involved to set aside their differences,? he said.
