The bailout offer being put to Greece is unviable and will require the support of opposition lawmakers or a national unity government to implement, Labour Minister Panos Skourletis said on Monday, adding there would be a snap election this year.
Skourletis also said those lawmakers who had vetoed the terms of bailout discussions should resign.
Euro zone leaders argued late into the night with near-bankrupt Greece at an emergency summit, demanding that Athens enact key reforms this week to restore trust before they will open talks on a financial rescue.
“In different circumstances, if there was normality, if there were no capital controls and a banking problem, I would immediately say that we should go to elections,” Skourletis said.
“The measures of the forthcoming deal plan are not viable,” he said.
