    British aneasthesiologist dr Right from the hospital of Heartfiled in London, where mr Papandreou was submitted to an open heart operation by egyptian surgeon dr Magdi Yacub 7 years ago, took part in the seesion held by the council today and expressed his full accord with the desicions of the doctors.

    Greek Prime Minister, 77 next February, has been treated in hospital since Monday suffering from a form of pneumonia which the doctors have characterised as mild and curable.

    In the beginning, the situation of mr Papandreou's has been characterised as critical taking into account the fact that he had had an open heart operation.

    In October 1993 mr Papandreou received the third mandate to form a government with an absolute majority in the parliament after two mandates received in 1981 and 1985.In total up-to-now mr Papandreou, leading the socialistic PASOK has been in office for 10 years.

    Mr Hitiris said the government continues working normally while he stressed that PASOK is united and everybody in the party looks forward to the restoration of mr Papandreou's health.
