Over the 20th century Greece shifted from monarchy to republic in a sequence that involved civil war, dictatorship, rigged referendums and several constitutional revisions. This experience is used to examine the changing profile of power relations of the post WWII monarchical and republic constitutions. A pattern of increasing authority, instrumental and positive power relations is observed. Of those only the former trend is compatible with the definitional propositions of the VOIP.
