  • [01] SYRIZA leads 3.1 pct over ND, shows opinion poll

    ANA/MPA---Main opposition SYRIZA leads by 3.1 percent over ruling New Democracy (ND) according to an opinion poll conducted by METRISI for the Sunday edition of newspaper Eleftheros Typos.

    According to the poll results, SYRIZA leads among those questioned with 27.2 percent, followed by New Democracy (ND) with 24.1 percent, Golden Dawn (Chryssi Avghi) with 6.4 percent, To Potami with 5.5 percent, the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) with 5.4 percent, PASOK with 5.3 percent and Independent Greeks with 2.3 percent. The unidentified vote reached 14.9 percent.

    51.6 percent of those questioned do not want early elections while 39.8 percent said they want early elections and the new parliament to elect the new President of Republic.

    [02] BoG governor Stournaras: Greek banking system has turned page

    ANA/MPA---Bank of Greece (BoG) governor Yannis Stournaras said that "today the Greek banks are based on more solid foundations in comparison with the recent years because they have substantially strengthen their capital position, as this is shown in ECB's evaluation, in order to contribute to the restructuring of the Greek economy" in a statement to Efimerida ton Syntakton newspaper.

    Stournaras also noted that the "Greek banking system has turned page. A few days before the assumption of the supervision of the four systemic banks by ECB's Supervisory Mechanism on November 4, the four larger Greek banks faced the important challenge of the stress tests organised by ECB. This allows them now to focus their efforts on the support of the real economy with the financing of enterprises and households and to face the problem of the non-performing loans".

    In another statement to Imerissia newspaper, Stournaras noted "At this moment we are before a paradox, the fundamental figures to move smoothly while the markets are in turbulence. In my opinion, the most important explanation of this fact has to do with the prevailing uncertainty on whether Greece will continue the economic policy that contributed to the creation of primary surpluses and towards the upgrading of the competitiveness or not".

    [03] Ryanair inaugurates flights from Thessaloniki's Macedonia airport to Paris' Beauvais

    ANA/MPA---Low-cost airliner Ryanair started flight services from Thessaloniki's International Airport "Macedonia" to Paris' Beauvais Airport three times a week, for a ticket of 25 euros one-way.

Since Sept. 1, the airliner increased the number of flights to Chania, Crete from six to seven per week and to Athens to six per week.
