PM Samaras: National Elections in June 2016

Prime Minister Antonis Samaras clarified on Saturday that "elections will be held in June 2016, at the end of the four-year parliamentary term" in an interview with Reuters after participating in a meeting of European and Asian leaders in Milan.
Samaras said that Athens continues successfully its course to exit from the international support programme noting that he sees one option as a credit line that Athens could tap post-bailout should it fall prey to future market turmoil adding that Greece would ride out market doubts about whether it can survive without international support.
Samaras also reiterated that Athens was talking with its lenders about what should happen if Greece succeeds in leaving its bailout programme by the end of December, a year ahead of schedule.
