  • [01] ND Central Committee convenes

    Ruling New Democracy (ND) party Central Committee will convene at 10:30 on Friday at a downtown Athens hotel. The meeting will open with an address by the Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis, after which Central Committee's members will outline their positions. The Central Committee will also discuss planning for the party's future actions and activities.

    [02] Customs staff end strike

    An Athens First Instance Court late Thursday declared an ongoing strike by custom officers as illegal, amid a widespread petrol shortage around the country.

    According to reports, union representatives for striking customs staff voted to suspend their indefinite strike

    [03] Doping law ratified

    The Parliament ratified in its entirety on Thursday the bill on violence at sports venues and on doping.

    Culture Minister Mihalis Liapis, referring to his decision to withdraw the amendment on the implementation of proportional representation in elections for members of the boards of sports federations, said that "this issue does not only touch Greek law. It also has parameters abroad."

    The minister further said that "from the moment that the federations are in a developing elections phase we shall give them time. There must be order in the federations, there should be democratic processes and transparency. However, to avoid mistakes on issues concerning FIFA, UEFA and the International Olympics Committee, a dialogue must be held with the federations to enable them to assume their responsibilities."
