    [02] State Minister Pappas: We need a public broadcaster free from the pathogenies of the past

    Public Broadcaster's (ERT) revival is a resounding response of dignity, a victory of the democracy" stated State Minister Nikos Pappas opening the debate on ERT draft law in parliament on Monday.

    "The government decided to give a resounding answer of dignity to those who attempted to keep alive the conditions of impoverishment of the Greek people not only in the economic but also in the cultural field," he said and called on all the political parties to contribute to the regeneration of the public broadcaster.

    "We need a public broadcaster open and free from the pathogenies of the past. A counterbalance to the propaganda, independent from any state intervention but mostly independent from the private interests as the draft law specifies," he said adding that the aim is the relation between the citizen and the public broadcaster to be restored.
