Government spokesman Yiorgos Petalotis on Tuesday lashed out at main opposition New Democracy (ND) party leader Antonis Samaras, stressing that "scenarios" of his party joining the government with ruling Pasok are nothing more than a “new fantasy” and an “idle wish”.

Petalotis made the comment in response to an earlier statement by Samaras, according to which he will not accept being in a coalition government with Pasok.

Petalotis said Pasok has received a popular mandate to lead the country out of the crisis and called on ND to contribute to the efforts aimed at overcoming the crisis, which was created in part by the ND government, as he charged.
