  • [01] Gov't on health sector

    (ANA-MPA) -- Health Minister Andreas Loverdos on Sunday was quoted as again warning over the repercussions of the ongoing economic crisis on the all-important public health sector.

    "If we do not prove effective and skillful in achieving savings, without cutting services to the citizens, then more aggressive and unfair policies will be needed. We're fighting for the opposite, if we don't succeed than conditions for a political crisis will be created," Loverdos was quoted as saying in an interview carried by the Athens weekly "RealNews".

    Moreover, he sharply dismissed reports of early elections, charging that whoever is circulating such a prospect is conscientiously making provocations.

    [02] Mass transit strikes on Mon.

    (ANA-MPA) -- Commuters in the greater Athens area are expected to face renewed inconvenience on Monday due to work stoppages announced by unions representing mass transit workers in the traffic-plagued Greek capital.

    Unions are continuing protests against pending government measures aimed to slash massive operating losses by public transport providers, mainly mergers, payroll cuts and transfers of excess personnel.

    Specifically, the Athens metro and the electric rail line (ISAP) are expected to be out of service between noon and 4 p.m. on Monday. Additionally, buses, trolley buses and the tram lines will also observe a work stoppage between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. To view the entire article please call the ANA-MPA subscription department at 2106400560.
