  • [01] PM briefed by interior minister; election draft law tabled after holidays

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Friday was briefed by Public Administration and Interior Minister Prokopis Pavlopoulos on issues affecting the latter's portfolio, including administrative reforms and contacts with the two organisations representing municipalities and prefectures in the country.

    Pavlopoulos, in fact, said a draft election law bill will be tabled after the holidays, a standing pledge by the current government to revise the electoral law early in its tenure.

    Additionally, he said measures to combat red-tape were discussed.

    Asked by reporters over the ongoing furor regarding the high-profile Zachopoulos case, and whether it has hurt the government's image, Pavlopoulos merely noted that the matter is under investigation by the independent judiciary.

    "It hurts the government's image only if facts are covered up. As you know, this government, as opposed to what usually occurred in the past, neither covers up anything, nor does it tolerate anything," he said.

    [02] PASOK leader visits children's home

    Main opposition PASOK leader George Papandreou on Friday visited a children's care centre in the eastern Attica prefecture township of Vari, along with his wife and three party deputies.

    Papandreou was greeted by the town's mayor and guided through the centre, SOS Vari, by its administrators, as the PASOK delegation handed out presents to children being hosted at the institution, including PCs and other items.

    The main opposition leader and one-time foreign minister thanked the staff for their work at the centre, noting that the hosted children must be raised with love "so that they, in turn, will offer love and kindness to future generations".
