The leader of the main conservative party, Antonis Samaras refused to sign a written acceptance of the austerity measures under the bailout deal provided by the European Union, the International Monetary Fund and the European Central Bank Torkia to Greece in terms of conditional financial aid, as the leader said that his word can be trusted and there is no need for a written guarantee.

On the other hand, international lenders fear the Greece could fail to meet targets, which has driven them to insist that Greece must provide a written acceptance, especially when elections are likely in the coming February and Greece missed targets in the past two years.

Athens News Agency reported that Samaras, the leader of the New Democracy Party told Trokia officials that he provided his commitment to the bailout plan along with his support for the Greek budget plan, which he considers adequate without signing a written acceptance of the bailout deal.
