The members' attitude was tough in the meeting as well. "Mr. President, you should go to the elections alone if you want to be president," said Tonia Antoniou. Nick Salagiannis, Sylvana Rapti, Yannis Michas and others asked for "clear solutions".
Now everybody awaits Papandreou’s response. If he insists all options are open. even if political council members insist on the voting, one must assume that there will be reactions by leading members, followed by a request for the immediate convening of the PG and the national council.
The until recently ruling party is in an extremely difficult position:
* MPs say they will not be candidates if Papandreou remains president
* top members are seeking other ways, even speaking about the possibility of a break-up.
