Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou has denied any plans of resigning, saying that he will stay in office and move forward to a cabinet reshuffle on Thursday, Xinhua reported.

Speaking in a televised address, he said: "I will continue on the path of reform along with the parliamentary group of PASOK and the Greek people. I will make a cabinet reshuffle Thursday and request the confidence vote of the parliament," he said.

He also blamed the opposition New Democracy Party for failure to reach agreement on forming a unity government to lead Greece out of the debt crisis.

Panhellenic Socialist Movement, better known as PASOK, is the current majority party in the Greek Parliament.
