After the conclusion of the general elections on Sunday and the formation of a new coalition government, Greece is expected to be at the center of discussion at the Eurogroup session scheduled for Monday.

Greece will be represented by Finance Minister Gikas Hardouvelis, who had a series of telephone communications with Yannis Dragasakis on Friday. Mr. Hardouvelis informed the SYRIZA official of the current financial matters at hand and the deadlines that have been set. The two also discussed the Eurogroup agenda along with the ECB’s quantitative easing program.

While Mr. Hardouvelis will represent Greece at the Eurogroup, he has not shied away from expressing his opinion that the new Greek government should conclude negotiations over the bailout program. Nevertheless, the outgoing Minister is expected to ask for an extension of the Greek program beyond the 28th of February and to increase the limit of treasury bills which the Greek state can issue, from 15 billion to 20 billion euros.

Mr. Dragasakis, who is tipped to be appointed government Vice President and coordinator of financial affairs, also spoke with the Governor of the Bank of Greece Yannis Stournaras in order to coordinate their actions and not waste any time in the negotiations in Europe.
