  • [01] PM's meetings with party leaders ahead of eurozone summit

    Prime minister George Papandreou will hold a series of meetings with opposition party leaders on Tuesday ahead of his departure for Paris and then on to Brussels for Friday's crucial extraordinary summit of the 17-nation eurozone to work out an action plan to prevent future debt crises, and the March 25 EU summit.

    Papandreou is holding separate meetings with main opposition New Democracy (ND) leader Antonis Samaras, Communist Party of Greece (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga, Popular Orthodox Rally (LAOS) leader George Karatzaferis and Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA parliamentary alliance) parliamentary group leader Alexis Tsipras throughout the day, followed by meetings with the non-parliamentary Democratic Alliance and Democratic Left parties' leaders Dora Bakoyannis and Fotis Kouvelis, respectively, in the late afternoon.

    [02] Winter arrives in Greece with vengeance

    Winter has arrived in Greece with a vengeance, with low temperatures, gale-force winds and snowfall throughout the country on Tuesday, including flurries in central Athens, with central and western Macedonia and the Peloponnese the hardest hit areas, especially on high ground.

    All ships have been banned from sailing from the ports of Piraeus, Lavrion and Rafina in Attica prefecture due to gale-force winds of up to 10 beaufort velocity in the seas, as well as the ferry crossing to nearby Salamis island from Perama. The sailing ban also affects the areas of Prinos-Kavala, Alexandroupolis-Samothraki, Arkitsa-Aedipsos, and Volos-Sporades Islands.
