Chrysochoidis throws support behind Venizelos

Citizen?s Protection Minister Michalis Chrysochoidis put an end to expectations about a possible candidacy of his for the PASOK presidency by throwing his support behind Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos.

Chrysochoidis spoke on Saturday morning as he was entering the party?s national meeting that started at the Peace and Friendship Stadium in Piraeus.

Evangelos Venizelos is expected to announce his candidacy for the party?s chair this weekend, but is likely to stay on at his ministry until the PASOK presidential election on March 18.

Saturday?s National Meeting will be followed on Sunday by the National Council?s session, which will ratify the candidacies for the presidency.
