  • [01] Trichet: No euro exit for Athens

    ROME (ANA-MPA) -- European Central Bank (ECB) chief Jean-Claude Trichet reiterated on Monday that for Greece to withdraw from the euro currency and return to the drachma would be "the worst possible choice", in reply to press questions on the sidelines of the Ambrosetti international economic forum in Cernobbio, northern Italy.

    Trichet also stressed that the euro "was not created against the dollar, but to secure stability and prosperity in the European Union". (ANA-MPA)

    [04] Registered legal migrants, repatriated Greeks to vote in municipal elections

    (ANA-MPA) -- A total of 12,762 repatriated Greeks and long-time legal immigrants (2,665 and 10,097, respectively), have registered nationwide to vote for the first time in the imminent municipal elections of November.

    Voter registration for participation in the Nov. 2 elections was completed on Aug. 31. Those registered after the August deadline will be eligible to vote in the next municipal elections.

    Repatriated Greeks and long-time legal immigrants can vote only in mayoral elections and not in regional elections. They also have the right to run for the office of the city councillor.

    [06] Groups slam mink release

    (ANA-MPA) -- A handful of Greece's best environmental organisations warned on Monday that the release of species alien to a specific ecosystem can be disastrous for local wildlife.

    The environmental organizations ANIMA, Arcturos, Kallisto and the Ornithological Society issued the warning in response to the recent -- and highly suspicious -- release of roughly 50,000 minks from two fur farms near the towns of Kastoria and Siatista, both in far northwest Greece. (ANA-MPA)

    The statement underlined that only a few of the animals will survive, given that the specific climate in the country is not ideal for them. They also stressed, however, that the (ANA-MPA) ones that do manage to survive will seriously disrupt the ecosystem along rivers and lakes.
