  • [01] Voting for suspension of VAT increase on islands hit by refugee crisis postponed

    The voting of the amendment for not increasing the VAT on islands hit by the refugee crisis was postponed to next Wednesday following the request for a roll call vote submitted by the Democratic Coalition.

    The amendment was included in the omnibus bill (bankruptcy law, electronic transactions, declaration of income) which was voted by majority.

    Main opposition New Democracy voted against all amendments although there were settlements it would like to support because of the way it was legislated by the government.

    New Democracy rapporteur Apostolis Vesyropoulos commented: "We are experiencing the ultimate humiliation of the legislative process", since 10 out of 15 amendments submitted to the omnibus bill were submitted with delay. However, he stated that ND will vote for the amendment to suspend the VAT increase on the islands.

    [02] FM Kotzias condemns terrorist attack in Ankara

    Foreign Minister Nikos Kotzias expressed his condolences to the people of Turkey, Germany and Switzerland and the families of the victims.

    Kotzias is in Cairo to attend the 4th Ministerial of the EU and the Arab League.

    Kotzias condemned the terrorist attacks and stressed he was "shocked by the murder of the Russian ambassador in Ankara."

    "These attacks," he said "reflect the instability in the wider region where our country is a pole of stability."

    [03] Nisyros rattled by 5.3-magnitude quake

    A 5.3-magnitude earthquake shook the island of Nisyros on Tuesday evening (08.03), according to information from Athens' Institute of Geodynamics.

    The epicenter of the tremor was located in the sea region, 23 klm south west of Nisyros.
