  • [01] State minister urges all parties to help for a 'clear television landscape'

    State Minister Nikos Pappas called on all political parties on Friday to contribute in achieving transparency in the TV licensing sector, during a debate in parliament on a proposal tabled by SYRIZA and ANEL to start a probe into the legality and conditions under which banks gave loans to parties and various media.

    "Let's look at the past, let's put our finger on the wound with the Inquiry Commission and let us all contribute so that the tender for the television licenses can be held, so that we can take stable steps towards a clear television landscape, a better television future," he told MPs.
