Debates on whether fresh Elections should take place in Greece, for a strong popular mandate clearly supporting an Austerity program linked also to Growth/Production's competitiveness boost, have recently started and are still going on in Greece.

Earlier, PASOK's Prime Minister Giorgos Papandreou proposed to main Opposition New Democracy party a coalitio government, but when its leader, Antonis Samaras, accepted on condition that Papandreou quits and a new coalition government negotiates an updated program with the EU and IMF, then, PASOK's leader reportedly refused.

Greek people had voted for PASOK back in 2009 on the basis of a program to fund growth and boost the development of the country, rehecting out-going ND Prime Minister Karamanlis austerity recipe. But, afterwards, PASOK pushed for an even more intensive austerity, contrary to its pre-electoral promisses.

Meanwhile, on the polls, ND has reportedly started recently to outnumber PASOK,  so that Samaras would apparently have an easy win if elections took place now or soon.
