    [03] PM's choice for party secretary approved by PASOK central com't

    03/07/2003 23:58:13

    Prime Minister Costas Simitis' choice for the post of ruling PASOK partys secretary, Public Order Minister Mihalis Chrysohoidis, was approved by a majority of the party's central committee members on Thursday.

    The vote followed Simitis' unexpected move a day earlier to request the resignation of previous party secretary Costas Laliotis, one of the ruling party's top cadres.

    Simitis had earlier tabled Chrysohoidis' nomination while addressing the urgently called PASOK central committee meeting in downtown Athens.

    Chrysohoidis, who will now leave the public order portfolio, received 118 votes, while 50 ballots were blank and another nine invalid. He was the only candidate for the post.

    In other statements, Simitis again directly referred to elections in 2004, which comes in the face of widespread speculation amongst local political circles that early elections will be scheduled for the autumn. Additionally, he reiterated his opposition to Cabinet ministers serving on the new executive bureau and vice-versa, saying the coming election campaign necessitates a clear delineation of duties for better results.

    Citing the eyebrow-raising resignation of Laliotis, a former long-time public works minister, Simitis said he asked the former to rejoin the government on Wednesday, something Laliotis declined.

    Chrysohoidis term at the public order ministry was highlighted by the unprecedented arrests of nearly two dozen ?November 17? terrorist suspects as well as detailed planning for the all-important security component of next years Olympic Games in Athens.
