'We Can't Afford The luxury of Delaying Reforms,' President Pavlopoulos Tells Minister

Self-evident reforms that were necessary for the country's smooth course within the European Union and the Eurozone must press ahead without delays, President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos said on Tuesday, during his meeting with caretaker government Interior and Administrative Reconstruction Minister Antonis Manitakis.
"The time is very dense, the crisis very deep and the reforms are necessary in order for us to find our way the soonest possible. Some people may think that we can afford to postpone them for the future. We have no such luxury nor the right," Pavlopoulos said.
He said Manitakis was right to continue the work begun by previous governments and have this ready on the day after the elections, so that the government that emerged could then make its own assessment, within the framework of its responsibilities.
