VIDEO REPORT – Papandreou considering referendum on membership in Eurozone

Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou is considering calling for a referendum on membership of the euro zone. The e-kathimerini newspaper in Athens reports today, that Papandreou hopes that the outcome of such a vote would constitute a fresh mandate for his Socialist government. That mandate is needed to continue with an austerity drive that’s pressed for by the organisations that are lending money to Greece to – the European Commission, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The paper said that a bill has been submitted in Parliament that paves the way for a referendum to be carried out.
