  • [01] New Democracy political committee convenes

    Main opposition New Democracy political committee, chaired by its leader Evangelos Meimarakis, convenes on Friday. The main topic to be discussed is the current political situation.

    [02] Alternate Citizen Protection Min Panousis sees elections in autumn

    Alternate Citizen Protection Minister Yiannis Panousis, commenting on disagreements within SYRIZA, spoke of a "three-party government" while adding that he "sees" elections in September or October.

    "We have three-party government. For it is one thing to disagree on a bill and another thing to have a coordinated, coherent another center of power," he said on Friday in statements to private Mega TV.

    Asked about the possibility of elections, he said that this is certain: "For six months a very large part of the government was negotiating while it was not required to do so; they needed to work, to govern. Now if we are 'in air' for three months, we will go to the polls in September; basically there are nine months that the government has not shown what is left."

    On the migrants issue, Panousis said that it is not a Greek problem and it is an issue that the Greek government cannot handle any longer.

    [03] Import trade situation smoothens, BoG governor Stournaras says

    The situation with the capital controls is proceeding satisfactorily and within the next ten days we will have resolved any problems that have arisen, Bank of Greece (BoG) governor Yannis Stournaras said after a meeting with trade representatives.

    As he stated, the approvals given for imports have been so far very close to the average monthly level of imports before the crisis.

    Stournaras also said that effort is being made to further relax restrictions in the coming days. He noted that the system is already more decentralized and 70 percent of the decisions are now taken by the banks themselves.
