ATHENS – As it has many times before, Greece’s government said there won’t be early elections even if negotiations fail to bring a deal with international lenders.

Prime Minister and Radical Left SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras’ team is putting another in long series of reforms previously rejected by the troika of the European Union-International Monetary Fund-European Central Bank (EU-IMF-ECB) which is holding back a 7.2-billion euro ($8 billion) installment until he does.

“Definitely our proposal is the starting point,” government spokesman Gabriel Sakellaridis told a news conference. “The mission of the Greek delegation is to explore the possibility of a solution that satisfies both sides,” he added.

He also said resorting to elections was not part of the government’s plans and that Greece was not seeking another extension to the four-months it got on Feb. 20 to the bailout terms. But Tsipras said before that he wouldn’t take the first extension either, but did.
