After a night of endless discussions the Greek farce “in search of a government” comes to an end.

The morning news programmes of the Greek TV, claiming Reuters reports, announced that the “most probable” name for a Prime Minister is that of Dr.Vassilis Skouris, President of the Court of Justice of the European Communities.

It has been made clear that no New Democracy Parliamentarian will be a member of this government. Indicative of the situation between the two biggest parties in Greece is that while PASOK MPs, like Mr. Hytiris, call this a “cooperation government” New Democracy MPs call it a “government of transition”. This does not augur well for the very difficult tasks facing the Greek people in the immediate future.
