  • [01] DIMAR State Deputy Lykoudis to resign from party

    ANA-MPA - Opposition Democratic Left (DIMAR) State Deputy Spyros Lykoudis and another 25 members of the party's Central Committee confirmed late on Monday they are leaving the party.

    Their official resignations will be submitted this week, they said, while Lykoudis will also decide what to do about his state deputy seat (to resign it or become independent).

    The 26, all of whom belong to Lykoudis' Reformation Trend movement, made their decision during a meeting at a central Athens hotel. They plan to call a national meeting within the next few weeks to agree on future initiatives.

    (DIMAR currently has 11 deputies in Parliament. In the May 2014 Europarliament elections, the party got 1.20% and did not elect an MEP.)

    [02] Hospital staff to hold protest on Wednesday over new hospital payments scheme

    ANA-MPA - A draft law setting up a new hospital payments agency, the Hospital Payment Systems Company SA, triggered a storm of protest from doctors and staff in hospitals, whose unions announced protest actions.

    The hospital doctors' union federation OENGE announced a work stoppage starting at noon on Wednesday in protest against the measure and is organising a protest rally outside Parliament at 12:30 on that day with the Athens-Piraeus Hospital Doctors Union (EINAP) and the hospital staff union federation POEDIN.

    OENGE said that the creation of the new company marked the state's complete withdrawal from funding the public health system and dismissed the modifications made by the health minister as immaterial, finding that "they do not change the essence of the drastic repercussions for patients, hospitals and doctors."
