Greek government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou says the new austerity package will be finalised by early next week at the latest, as Athens News reports. The new, 11.5bn euro austerity will be finalised ''no later than early next week'', the government spokesman said. In an interview with Radio Alpha 98.9, Simos Kedikoglou claimed that the government was trying to ''find the fairest possible solution at a very difficult time for decisions that no one would like to take but which were necessary and the last'' that the country will have to take. Kedikoglou also said that the austerity package would be accompanied by development policies. ''These 11.5bn euros is the amount that must be saved for us to begin to regain our economic independence,'' the minister told the station.
