  • [01] KKE query on health sector

    Communist Party of Greece (KKE) MPs tabled a question in Parliament on Monday directed to the ministry of health regarding what the party deputies call the "unacceptable situation in the sector of health". In their tabled question, the communist MPs also pointed to the situation as emanating from the "results of a privatisation policy." The question, signed at the top by KKE General Secretary Aleka Papariga, charges that a continuous deterioration of problems in the health sector is the result of political decisions made by the current government and by previous PASOK governments. The KKE MPs also blame their leftist rival in Parliament, the Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA), for "maintaining that controlled business activities and fulfilling people's needs can co-exist."

    [02] Replacement for Vatopedi Abbot

    The administrative responsibilities relinquished by Vatopedi Monastery Abbot Ephraim, following his closely watched meeting with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I in Istanbul last week, will be turned over to Monk Germanos, according to a relevant decision by the Mount Athos monastery's eight-member monastic council on Monday. Ephraim will continue to be the eponymous monastery's Abbot and exercise his spiritual duties. The Mount Athos community, the supreme administrative body of the autonomous all-male Orthodox monastic community located on a promontory in northern Greece, will convene a joint meeting of all 20 monastery representatives and abbots on Tuesday to discuss the latest developments in the monastic community -- particularly the politically charged Vatopedi land swaps with the state.
