  • [01] Ambitious lake restoration project in central Greece

    A large reservoir filling with flood runoff waters is expected to replenish the previously drained Lake Karla, in the Thessaly plain, via an ambitious reclamation project, one aimed at meeting the agriculture-dependent area's irrigation needs. Following its draining in 1962, a portion of the previous lake-bed was cultivated with, however, only mediocre results. Conversely, fish stock expectedly vanished and the region's entire micro-climate was negatively affected, including soil erosion, loss of biodiversity and reduced ground water.

    [02] LAOS rally in Kavala

    Popular Orthodox Rally (LA.OS) president George Karatzaferis on Sunday sharply criticised ruling New Democracy and main opposition PASOK over what he called a phenomenon of nepotism in Greek politics.

    "Neither of the two major parties is able to provide solutions to country's outstanding issues," Karatzaferis said from the northeast city of Kavala, underlining that the issue it is not directly tied to the economy but political.

    Regarding his charges of nepotism, he said that in the past 65 years three families have governed Greece, an unprecedented phenomenon for Europe.

    Asked about the possibility of cooperation with ND after the Euro-elections, Karatzaferis said he feels closer to PM Costas Karamanlis than with Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis.
