Greece's National Elections will be Held on July 7, Gov't Spokesman

Greece's national elections will be held on July 7, under the current government and not an interim one, said Government Spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos in statements to Alpha radio on Tuesday evening. He added that there would be changes, as procedures foresee, in the leadership of the Interior Ministry. Tzanakopoulos said Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will see President Prokopios Pavlopoulos on June 10 to ask for the dissolution of parliament, and added that "the prime minister decided to hold elections on July 7, to avoid disrupting the process of (school) exams."
