Greek gov’t says early elections not being considered

Athens dismissed media reports on Monday that the government was considering calling early elections.

“Once again election scenarios have surfaced. The best answer to those is the popular mandate the government enjoys,» a Greek government official said. «We continue to seek a mutually beneficial solution (with our lenders), respecting the people’s mandate.”

German newspaper Bild reported earlier on Monday that some in the Greek government were looking at new elections.
