  1. ok he has resigned but it is not clear whether there is 100% degree of honor to be given to him. If I were toquantify if he resigns on the following years,  i would give him   94-100% 2007;86-93% 2008; 79-85% 2009; 73-78%-2010;66-72% 2011.  I would be a little bit understanding and lenient, therefore he receives a 75% degree of honor in his resignation.
