  • [01] Rehn urges decision 'today' for disbursement of tranche

    Brussels (AMNA/M. Aroni) -- European Commissioner for economic and monetary affairs Ollie Rehn stressed the need for a decision to be taken for the disbursement of an outstanding tranche of the EU/IMF bailout loan to Greece as he entered a crucial Eurogroup meeting in Brussels on Monday of the eurozone's finance ministers on Greece.

    "We must decide the disbursement of the next tranche so that the uncertainties still existing on the Greek issue will be lifted. It is important for Greece, but also for Europe. I call on the member states and the INF to take the final step for a solution to be found, because we are just a fraction away from one," Rehn said.

    He opined that the Eurogroup can take a political decision "today" for the disbursement of the tranche to Greece.

    Municipal employees in Thessaloniki will stage a four-hour stoppage on Wednesday, beginning at 11:00 am.

    In Athens, municipal employees will continue their take-over of the municipality's human resources directorate on Monday and will expand the takeovers to municipal technical services on Tuesday.

    POE-OTE said in an announcement that the local government employees are determined to continue and escalate their mobilisations until the government is forced to back its measure of reserve employment.
