    (ANSAmed) - ATHENS, FEBRUARY 13 - Top New Democracy (ND, center-right) executives believe president Antonis Samaras is politically finished and are now discussing the manner and process of his questioning as daily To Vima online reports. A dinner of top executives Wednesday night called by former Education Minister Marietta Giannakou, the forthcoming meeting of the party's parliamentary group and the convene of its political committee at the end of the month are expected to be the main points that will show what will happen in the future.

The question for the party executives now is how to directly address the situation in the ND, while suggestions were also expressed towards a straightforward challenging.
