    Ex- Ministers Constantinos Simitis and Theodoros Pangalos who resigned from the body belong to this category as well as ex-European Union commissioner ms Vasso Papandreou.

    Political circles in Athens say thta the cliamate in the governing socialistic party is described as grave since according to polls, if there were elections now, just two years after PASOK's victory in 1993, the main opposition party of New Democracy would have a five-point lead from PASOK while ND president mr Miltiades Evert and ms Vasso Papandreou share the most positive opinions on the best to be the prime minister.

    Mr Nikos Constantopoulos, president of the party of the coalition of the left which does not have any MPs in the national parliament is looked upon positively by one in two voters while the presidents Andreas Papandreou of PASOK, Miltiades Evert of New Democracy and Antonis Samaras of Political Spring have the positive opinion of one in three voters.
