ATHENS, June 15 (Reuters) - Any potential unity government in Greece would not be able to overhaul the country's year-old bailout plan with the European Union and International Monetary Fund, the country's development minister said on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, government sources said Prime Minister George Papandreou had offered to step down and make way for a national unity government, but the opposition conservatives said a condition would be renegotiating the aid deal.

"I'm not saying we shouldn't renegotiate, on the contrary, but it is wrong to think that a new government could go to Brussels tomorrow and renegotiate everything," Minister Mihalis Chrysohoidis said on Mega TV. (Reporting by Harry Papachristou and Ingrid Melander; writing by Michael Winfrey)
