Despite some calls for a meeting of PASOK’s national council to be called so the process of electing a new leader could begin, Papandreou only committed to reconvening the political council in January.
PASOK heavyweights put pressure on party chief George Papandreou to begin a leadership race during Tuesday’s meeting of the Socialists’ political council, with some arguing that a new president should be in place by next month.
PASOK spokesman Panos Beglitis avoided to talk about the process of electing a new leader of PASOK, but he only discussed a potential election that will be decided over time.
During the political council on the 4th of January, Papandreou is intended to ask for the assembly of the national council, during which an ordinary congress will be decided.
