  • [01] Population census on May 10-24

    (ANA-MPA) -- A population and residence census will be conducted in Greece on May 10-24, the Hellenic Statistical Authority (EL.STAT) announced in a press conference on Wednesday.

    A total of 55,000 census-takers will participate in the procedure aimed at putting together demographic, economic and social characteristics of the population which are necessary in decision-making and in planning the country's economic and social policy.

    The duration of the procedure will be under 25 minutes and citizens will have to respond to simple questions concerning their residence, the people living in it, their age, profession, education and their employment status. The information that will be collected will be confidential. (ANA-MPA)

    [02] FinMin: Backdated increases in MPs' pensions, salaries an insult

    (ANA-MPA) -- Claims expressed for backdated increases in former Parliament deputies' pensions and salaries were met with the categorical rejection by Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou on Wednesday, who underlined that "any such demand is an insult to the commonly shared sense of justice, particularly in the present fiscal conjuncture".

    Papaconstantinou made the statement in response to news reports on "backdated remunerations" claimed by former MPs. (ANA-MPA)

    [03] Cheaper ferry tickets

    (ANA-MPA) - -Coastal shipping tickets will reportedly be at least 10 percent cheaper this summer, following a so-called "gentlemen's agreement" reached on Tuesday between Maritime Affairs Minister Yiannis Diamantidis and the representatives of coastal shipping companies.

    Diamantidis held consecutive meetings with representatives of the Federation of Passenger Shipping Firms and the Union of Shipping Enterprises and agreed with them that whatever decrease takes place in withholdings for third parties, that burden the shipping ticket, will pass automatically onto the final price of the ticket and will be in the citizens' favour.
