  • [01] SYRIZA leader to visit PPC plant in Amyntaio on Wednesday

    SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras on Wednesday noon will visit the PPC plant and lignite mine in Amyntaio, in the northwestern region of Florina, as part of his party's campaign against the "sell-off of the Public Power Corporation."

    The main opposition leader will also meet (at 13.30) with the local organisations and officials that co-organise a rally in Amyntaio.

    [02] Education Minister calls on Technical University administrative staff to end strike

    Education Minister Andreas Loverdos on Wednesday called on the administrative staff of the National Technical University (Polytechnic) to end their strike and open the university.

    "Students risk losing their semester," Loverdos told MEGA TV and called on the university administrative staff to end the strike. "They do now own the universities and they should stop adding fuel to the fire," he warned.

    He added that the university administrative staff will meet with the Rector later in the day, adding that there is still room for a solution to be found.

    Loverdos concluded that from a political and social aspect, it is a pointless action and the consequences on the university will be significant.

    Meanwhile, the head of the first-instance court prosecutor Panagiota Fakou ordered an urgent investigation on the operation of the university following reports that the entrance of its premises remains closed and students are prevented from entering the building.

    [03] Cephalonia's Myrtos beach accessible again in a few days

    The renowned Myrtos beach on the quake stricken Cephalonia, which was made inaccessible due to rock fall protection works, in a few days will be again open to tourists, Infrastructure, Transport and Network Minister Michalis Chryssohoidis said.

    Chryssohoidis visited Cephalonia to inspect the progress of works for the restoration of damages caused by a strong earthquake earlier this year at the Lixouri port and the islands' road network.

    "Cephalonia has been restoring damages and healing its wounds day by day. Public infrastructure is restored day by day," Chryssohoidis said after the meeting.

    "The Lixouri port has been completed and the new section of the port has been tendered; almost all major projects to restore the road network have been tendered. There has been significant progress with the support and relief of citizens who rent houses or live with next-of-kin. Generally, there has been an enormous effort, the whole state mechanism has been mobilized so as to make Cephalonia a better place than before," he added.
