  • [01] Karamanlis chairs Inner Cabinet meeting

    The first trial digital broadcast will be launched on November 1, 2008, announced Minister of State and government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos after an Inner Cabinet meeting on Tuesday that focused on sector issues chaired by Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis. A presidential decree and two joint ministerial decisions will have to precede the issuing of broadcast licenses to radio and television channels by the National Council for Radio and Television (ESR), Roussopoulos stated adding that the goal set is to ensure that television channels will have financial independence from commercial sponsors. "ERT public television has already commenced the broadcast of three pilot digital programmes," Roussopoulos said, stressing that nothing had been done in the field since 1961 when a total of 107 frequencies had been allocated to Greece. The radio and television frequency chart was drawn up after the international convention in Geneva in 2004 when Greece acquired the right of use for a total of 2,500 frequencies. Responding to a question by a reporter on the different opinions expressed by government MPs, he said that the government proceeds with the implementation of its election pledges. On the planned mergers of municipalities and prefectures, Roussopoulos commented that the government makes its moves following consultations with the National Union of Municipalities and Communities (KEDKE) and the Greek National Union of Prefectural Local Authorities (ENAE) aimed at making local government organizations (OTA) more flexible and effective able to receive EU funding and best utilize their own funds.
