NEWS VOL. XL1II—NO. 9 Populist Party Apparently Greek Election Damaskinos Calls Fr Meeting Of Leaders To Form Government ATHENS, April 1. (UP)—Pie, , Themlstocles Sofoulis submiLtec'. government's resignation tody it became evidetit that the Hoy Populist party would win n mi, ity of the votes cast ycsteitlaj the Greek general election. ^ Archbishop Damaskinos iege, of Greece, summoned Populist pa ty lenders to a conference tomo: row to discuss the formation of "« new government. The regent asked Sofoulis to stay in office until the new government is completed. The Populist party's administrative committee will confer with Detnaskinos tomorrow and receive a commission to form a new cabinet. Only part of the election results were known. The returns failed to record an overwhelming demand for the return of King George ot the Hellenes. The Interior Ministry announced returns from 490 polling places throughout Greece. Of 272.855 votes. the Populists got 155.487, the Liberals 49.790. the National Political Union 61,573. Populist lenders, who advocated a quick plcbcscitc for the king's return to the throne, conceded that returns failed to fulfill their expectations of a major victory. Returns. Indicated that the Populists polled about twice the vote of any other participating party, but th c total Populist strength was roughly equal to the combined voting power of the Liberal Party and National Political Union. Informed quarters believed that a rightist- center coalition would result, and a plebescitc on King George would b c delayed until 1948. Greek voters apparently rejected both the left and extreme right in genera\ly orderly voting. Despite strenuous appeals by the EAM left-wing coalition to boycott thc election, an estimated CO to 70 per cent of the eligible voters cast ballots. There were no left- wing (candidates. The extreme right, represented by thc militant, monarchist organization called "X", was roundly defeated. It polled only a few hundred votes. "" Ninety rJistrieU in :Athens and 3S districts in Salonika gave the Populists 33.593. the Liberals 15.022 and the National Political Union 14.414. Both liberals and the National Political Union showed unexpected strength. The exact extent and significance of tho abstentions was obscure. It appeared that an average of 50 per cent of the voters boycotted I the Polls in the EAM strongholds of northern Greece, heeding the BAM charges that the election was unfair and loaded with illegal voting lists.- Tn some conservative districts in the Athens and Southern areas, there were only 20 per cent abstentions. roiTR • v-.w -^jj^v- / - ,-•; '.tr - ';„' - .v>£V#rfU . v -' • **<£? -s 1 ',-^ 4i-o%*4y;\ , ."'*.,. ,-, ^.
