  • [01] Agreement on TV regulator ensures no jobs are lost, say ND source

    The agreement among political parties on Thursday on the new board of the country's independent media body ensures that no TV channel will close and no jobs will be lost, New Democracy source said in a statement after the end of a meeting in parliament.

    "With New Democracy's responsible stance we ended the lawlessness caused by Mr. Pappas. We ensured we will have a truly objective, unbiased and strong NCRTV which will play its role responsibility and serve the citizens' right to objective information," the party source said, noting that the government suffered a great political defeat and was forced to a "disorderly defeat".

    The same source said the main opposition was always in favour of independent watchdogs which it proved by agreeing to the formation of four out the five constitutionally protected independent regulators within a few months.

    [02] Sports minister says government will seek help from anti-terror squad to fight football-related crime

    The government will not tolerate organized crime in football and may block Greek football clubs from European championships if it doesn't succeed in ending the violence, Deputy Minister for Sports Giorgos Vassiliadis said on Thursday, following a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

    The meeting comes after a suspected arson attack on a referee's home, which prompted the indefinite suspension of all league games.

    Vassiliadis said the government will seek the help of the anti-terrorism police to investigate the crime and any other similar incidents involving football noting it will not accept the "deep state being more powerful than the organized state and society".

    "If we don't achieve this with these actions, then it sound be made clear that the government has the will and the way to impose the exit of the Greek clubs from the European championships until we succeed," he said.
