ATHENS (Reuters) - Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou proposed on Wednesday forming a national unity government on condition that it would support EU/IMF bailout plans, national broadcaster Net TV reported on Wednesday.
Papandreou also offered to step down to facilitate the formation of such a national unity government, Net TV said.
“If I am the problem, I am not tied down to my chair. I can discuss everything, even a national unity government,” Papandreou was quoted by Net TV as saying to opposition leader Antonis Samaras.
