"I cannot align with the rhetoric of the far right-wing" said Çetin Mandacı, the muslim MP of PASOK in Xanthi, making clear that he will not give a confidence vote. Addressing mainly the party of LAOS he said "I cannot walk side by side with them… this is my own red line." 
However, Mandacı spoke extensively about Papandreou’s efforts to reduce the social gap between minority and majority while for the new PM Lucas Papademos he said "I believe in his abilities."
