Greek early elections ‘likely’ in the autumn, says government spokeswoman


Early elections are "likely" in Greece in the fall, a government spokeswoman said Wednesday as Athens races to hammer out a new bailout deal with its creditors by August 20.

"Elections are likely in the autumn," spokeswoman Olga Gerovasili told Vima radio, adding: "It mainly depends on how steady this government can be in the coming period."
