    [01] GREEK PREMIER FURIOUS OVER IN PARTY CRITICISM

    Greek Prime Minister mr Andreas Papandreou expressed today his fury over the continuing in party criticism which he has received lately by prominent members of the central committee of the party.

    Mr Papandreou condemned the amoralism, which according to the Prime Minister, is called policy while he said that everybody who would like to break PASOK should try to do it and see the results in the polls.

    Mr Papandreou said that he will not stand being a prime minister under tuition, term by which he referred to a suggestion made by MP ms Vasso Papandreou who doubted his ability to govern.

    [02] EX-MINISTER LEAVES PASOK

    After mr Papandreou's speech, ex - Economy Minister mr Dimitris Chovolas who had challenged mr Akis Tsohadjopoulos as a secretary of the central committee in July 1994 submitted his resignation from the central committee and the party as well.

    Mr Chovolas accused the Prime Minister of ridiculing the institutions of the party and of applying a policy with no common points with the programme PASOK had promised to apply in the 1993 elections.

    It is not excluded that mr Chovolas, who had been tried alongside mr Papandreou in the supreme court in 1989, may proceed to establishing a new party.

    In a speech he had programmed to make today, Mr Chovolas accused the leadership of PASOK of having no diffference with the mani opposition party fo BNew Democracy, shouting "who governs this place".

    Dimitris Chovolas, a lawyer in profession was born in Arta Epirus in the 50s.He was first elected in parliament in 1981 and he was reelected in 1985 and twice in 1989.

    In the 1990 elections he was elected first in the second periphery of Athens but lost his place in the parliament after he was sentenced to 2.5 imprisonment and loss of his civil rights.

    His place in the parliament was covered after elections which PASOK won against no opponent.

    In a statement he made after ex-minister's resignation mr Papandreou expressed his sorrrow for it calling him to withdraw it, stressing that mr Chovolas is honoured in PASOK.

    Ex - Minister Mr Constantinos Simitis whose resignation from the government last September had accelerated the reshuffle accused the Prime Minister of denying the reality stressing that all leaders have the privilige to choose when to leave while he contradicted that he will seek a political future outside PASOK.

    Ms Vasso Papandreou ex-minister and exEuropean Union Commissioner, political friend of mr Simitis's said that her positions were misjudged by the Prime Minister and added that they will look for a new PASOK to build.

    [03] NEW SECRETARY FOR PASOK CENTRAL COMMITTEE

    Ex - Interior Minister mr Constantinos Scandalidis, MP of the Dodekanese, South East Aegean Sea, was elected today with a wide majority in the position of the Secretary of the Central Committee of the governing Socialistic party PASOK in replacement of mr Akis Tsohadjopoulos who had to leave the place after he entered government in the recent resshufle.

    Mr Scandalidis got 111 votes out of the 150 member committee while 34 casted a white ballot and 5 were absent.In 1993 Mr Tsohadjopoulos had got 103 votes, and his then opponent mr Chovolas 13 while 32 members had casted a white ballot

    According to the statute of the party the secretary of the central committee can not hold a place in the government.

    Alongside the vote for a new secretary, the central committee voted for the new 19-member executive bureau of the party.

    Ex-secretary of the party mr Tsohadjopoulos was elected first in the new bureau, followed by ex minister and member of the outgoing bureau mr Yannis Souladakis, minister of the environment mr Constantinso Laliotis, speaker of the parliament mr Apostolos Kaklamanis, Defense Minister mr Yerassimos Arsenis, state minister and close friend of the Prime Minister mr Andonis Livanis, Transport Minister mr Evangelos Venizelos, and Labour Minister mr Stephanos Djoumakas.
