    AND WHEN THE GREEK PEOPLE GO TO THE POLLS TOMORROW (SUNDAY) IT COULD WELL BE MR.KARAMANLIS, LEADER OF THE RIGHTWING NATIONAL RADICAL UNION, WHO RETURNS ONCE MORE AS PRIME MINISTER -- THE OFFICE HE HELD FOR EIGHT YEARS UNTIL A FEW MONTHS AGO.OBSERVERS BELIEVE THAT THE 56 YEAR-OLD FORMER PREMIER HAS AT LEAST 46 PER CENT OF THE ELECTORATE BEHIND HIM.

    AGAINST HIM ARE THREE MAIN PARTIES: THE UNION OF THE CENTRE, LED BY GEORGE PAPANDREOU, 75-YEAR-OLD; THE UNITED DEMOCRATIC LEFT; AND THE PROGRESSIVE PARTY LED BY GREECE'S YOUNGEST POLITICAL LEADER, MR.SPYROS MARKEZINIS, 54 YEARS OLD.

    AT LEAST FIVE MILLION ARE EXPECTED TO VOTE TOMORROW AND A PROBABLE WINNER SHOULD BE INDICATED BY MIDNIGHT.BUT FINAL RESULTS WILL NOT BE KNOWN BEFORE NEXT TUESDAY BECAUSE THE COUNTING OF SOME 114,000 VOTES OF THE ARMED FORCES AND CIVIL SERVANTS WILL BE DELAYED.
