  • [01] PM: Gov't remains committed to econ program

    BRUSSELS (ANA-MPA / Special contributor I. Karanassopoulou) -- Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou said here on Wednesday that Greece remained absolutely adherred on the continuation of the programme that will make the Greek economy viable despite the difficulties it has.

    Arriving at the European Union Summit and after attending an extraordinary "mini summit" with the participation of European Council President Herman van Rompuy, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, European Central Bank (ECB) President Jean-Claude Trichet, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Papandreou said: "We have a battle ahead of us, a battle, a battle for the Greeks, for Greece, for Europe. We hope that the EU as well will create the suitable framework. With the EU's strong commitment there shall be the approval of the programme by the Parliament as well as our commitment."

    [02] ND leader steadfast at EPP summit

    BRUSSELS (-PA) -- Main opposition New Democracy (ND) party leader Antonis Samaras remained steadfast in his positions on the need for a different economic policy mixture for the exit from the crisis, despite intense pressure exerted on him during the European People's Party (EPP) summit here on Thursday.

    The ND leader reiterated to his European counterparts that he agrees with the targets and the fiscal restructuring means, namely, with the elimination of the deficit, the curbing of the debt, the decrease in state extravagance and the structural changes.

    He pointed out that all these constitute proposals of his party, proposals that ND has supported and will continue to support in the Greek Parliament as well.

    Samaras clarified that he is demanding much more than the government can do both in terms of privatisations and in the state's property utilisation, but he clarified that ND disagrees with the policy mixture that has already led to a deep and prolonged recession, that has paralysed the economy and has annulled the restructuring programme.

    He admitted that "most of the European leaders remained steadfast to their positions" but made it clear that he will not vote for the Medium-term programme. (-PA)

    [03] Seismography network on isle

    (ANA-MPA) -- A new portable digital seismograph network recently acquired by the National Observatory of Athens is being tested on the southern Aegean island of Santorini.

    The third station of seismographs, featuring equipment that operates via the mobile phone network, was installed on Thursday, allowing the transmission to Athens in real time of seismic data received from anywhere in Greece.

    The head of the Geodynamic Institute's portable network, seismologist Gerassimos Houliaras, told the ANA-MPA that "Santorini is a quiet place that has no industrial noise and, therefore, allows us to test the data transmission to Athens."
