    Background: AFTER DISSOLVING THE GREEK PARLIAMENT THE PREVIOUS NIGHT, KING PAUL CALLED 63-YEAR-OLD GENERAL CONSTANTINE DOVAS AND OTHER PERSONALITIES TO THE ROYAL PALACE SEPT 20 AND SWORE THEM IN AS A CARETAKER CABINET UNTIL GENERAL ELECTIONS ARE HELD ON OCTOBER 29.

    THE KING ACTED ON THE RECOMMENDATION OF THE FORMER PRIME MINISTER, CONSTANTINE KARAMANLIS, WHO, AFTER SIX YEARS OF LEADERSHIP HANDED HIS CABINET'S RESIGNATION TO KING PAUL ON SEPT 19.

    GENERAL DOVAS, FORMER CHIEF OF NATIONAL DEFENCE, AND HEAD OF THE ROYAL MILITARY HOUSEHOLD UNTIL SEPT 20, WAS SELECTED AFTER A CONTROVERSY HAD ARISEN BETWEEN THE GOVERNMENT AND THE OPPOSITION ABOUT THE CARETAKER CABINET'S FORMATION. THE OPPOSITION THREATENED TO ABSTAIN FROM THE ELECTION UNLESS A NON-PARTY CARETAKER CABINET WAS APPOINTED TO ENSURE FAIR CONDUCT OF ELECTION.
