Talk of snap elections is ‘nonsense’, says Samaras

Former premier Antonis Samaras on Thursday said that any talk of snap elections was ‘nonsense.’ In a televised statement on Thursday, the New Democracy chief reiterated his position for a “great national understanding,” calling the move the only solution for the cash-strapped country.

Samaras’s comments came in the wake of a five-hour meeting between Greece’s creditors and Greek PM Alexis Tsipras in Brussels on Wednesday.

The meeting failed to seal an agreement, with more discussions expected over the next days.
