But the analysts also questioned whether Papandreou can survive Friday's confidence vote.
Venizelos, one of the most powerful men in the PASOK government, originally supported Papandreou's plan. He changed his mind after he and Papandreou attended the emergency summit in Cannes on Wednesday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Papandreou called for his party to rally behind him in the confidence vote. "Tomorrow's vote is of great importance. It will guarantee how we will continue, our next steps," he said. "There must be stability of this parliamentary group regardless Converse Pink And Green of whatever discussion we hold with other parties."
One analyst rated Papandreou's chances as slim. "The prime minister's position is very difficult, since he chose not to respond to the opposition's proposal for a transitional coalition government. Therefore I believe that it is unlikely that he will win the vote tomorrow," said the head of ALCO pollsters, Costas Panagopoulos.
A finance ministry source told Reuters on condition of anonymity that Venizelos believed the vote on the bailout should not be held while eight billion euros in immediate funding to keep Greece afloat still had to be secured.

Analysts declared the referendum idea dead, a relief to euro zone leaders who agreed the bailout only last week. A no vote would have sunk a deal which is supposed to prevent Greece's debt crisis from dragging down far bigger European economies such as Italy and Spain.
"Under these conditions a referendum is exactly what the country does not need. He would not have objections if all our pending issues such as the loan instalment and the completion of the bailout plan had been sorted out," the source said after the meeting with Merkel and Sarkozy.
Papandreou fought back off the ropes, saying the referendum plan which provoked uproar at home and around the euro zone had forced the opposition to accept the 130 billion euro rescue and its conditions a new wave of deep austerity.
Samaras led calls for a new government. "I'm asking for the formation of a temporary, transitional government with an exclusive mandate to immediately hold elections.
Unbowed, Papandreou hailed his referendum proposal for forcing Samaras to change his mind and back the package.
grave danger of losing the parliamentary vote of confidence on Friday as defections shrink his support. One PASOK lawmaker said she would not support the government, cutting its majority for that vote to just one.
Greeks have fiercely opposed the spending cuts, tax rises and job losses which have been the price of financial aid from the IMF and the European Union to tackle the nation's huge debt and budget deficit. This has led to a wave of strikes and outbreaks of violence on the streets of Athens.
Chaos over Greece's role in the euro zone swept financial markets with early losses in stocks and the euro turning to gains on hopes Athens might ditch its referendum plans.
Papandreou defended putting the bailout to the Greek people, and flatly rejected suggestions by European leaders that the nation had to decide simply whether it wanted to stay in the euro or leave it.
PASOK has 152 deputies in the 300 member parliament. Lawmaker Eva Kaili announced she would stay in the party but refused to support the confidence vote, meaning Papandreou could count at most on the support of 151 deputies.
"We would never choose to hold a referendum on whether we leave or stay in the euro. It's not something you can ask the Greek people about. It is self evident (they want to stay)," he told a meeting of lawmakers of his socialist Converse For Girls
Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou defied demands on Thursday that he resign over his decision to hold a referendum on the nation's euro zone bailout deal, calling instead for his party to unite for a confidence vote in the government.
"I am pleased that opening the discussion through the referendum delivered a positive, creative shock," he said. "If the opposition comes to the table to back the bailout, a referendum is not needed."
Events in Athens gathered speed a day after Papandreou held a bruising meeting in Cannes with the German and French leaders, who told him Greece would not receive a cent more in aid until it voted to meet its commitments under the bailout deal.
He did offer to drop the referendum if the opposition backed the bailout in parliament, trying to turn the tables on the conservative New Democracy party which called for him to make way for a transitional government and early elections.
"It was a very difficult meeting," the source added.
"I trust the wisdom and the maturity of the Greek people and I trust them . I'm not saying this romantically, I deeply believe in democracy."
The specter of a precipitous Greek default and euro exit hung over a meeting of G20 leaders beginning in Cannes on Thursday. But opposition leader Antonis Samaras said Papandreou had told him he would not quit.
"This day had one very positive result, the withdrawal of the prime minister's proposal for a referendum. This is over, it's a dead issue. This is very positive for Greece and a great relief," he added.
