  • [01] Superleague play-offs postponed

    The football matches between Olympiacos Piraeus-PAOK Thessaloniki and AEK Athens-Aris Thessaloniki for the third day of the Superleague play-offs scheduled for Thursday have been postponed, according to a decision by the Greek Superleague authority following a police request.

    The full text of Superleague's announce is as follows:

    "The Superleague following a Greek Police request, has decided to postpone the matches of the 3rd day of the play-off scheduled to be played on Thursday. The organising authority will announce a new the date for the matches."

    [02] Gov't assumes full responsibility

    ANA-MPA/The government assumes the responsibility and political cost of applying the harshest program for restructuring the economy, with a complete sense of the responsibility, and commits itself to succeeding, even without allies from the entire political spectrum, finance minister George Papaconstantinou stressed Thursday in parliament as the House began debate of the bill on the "measures for the implementation of the support mechanism for the Greek economy by the eurozone member countries and the International Monetary Fund (IMF)".

    "We assume the responsibility for the country's last opportunity to do over the next three years all that has not been done for decades. We opted for the major structural changes, and will be judged on our efforts," Papaconstantinou added.

    Speaking at the first reading (in-principle) of the bill, he noted that the draft law has been tabled under "urgent procedures" because a 9 billion euros government bond loan matures in two weeks and the country will not be able to repay it without borrowing, and the only way is to get the money from the country's European partners and the IMF.

    "All our partners' parliaments are at this same time, deciding on the three-year program to which we have committed. Will the Greek parliament show that it commits?" he asked.
