  • [01] Draft bill on e-prescription of medicines passed, in principle

    (-PA) -- Deputies from ruling PASOK, main opposition New Democracy (ND) and the small right-of-centre Popular Orthodox Rally (LA.OS) party on Monday evening approved, in principle, a bill envisioning the electronic prescription of medications, a measure the government hopes will combat the widespread practices of overcharging, over-prescription and exploitation of consumers and health funds.

    Communist party (KKE) deputies voted against the draft bill, while demanding abolition to VAT rates on medicines, while MPs of the other small leftist party in Parliament, SYRIZA, voted "present".

    [02] Merciless with main parties

    ANa-MPa/Communist Party of Greece (KKE) General Secretary Aleka Papariga on Monday accused the prime minister of having arranged in advance for a "controlled" default by Greece. Speaking in the Piraeus district of Nikaia, Papariga stressed that the "dilemma" that Prime Minister George Papandreou had put to voters in the upcoming local elections did not, therefore, have any basis.

    "A controlled bankruptcy means the following: an uncontrolled, extremely rapid bankruptcy for the people and, from then on, there will be a negotiation about how much the creditors will receive. In other words, the dilemma raised by the prime minister 'PASOK or bankruptcy' has no basis, is absolutely outdated. By voting for PASOK, you vote for faster bankruptcy," she said.

    She urged voters to be merciless to both ruling PASOK and main opposition New Democracy, ensuring that neither had a chance at recovery and stressed that both parties were the "pillars" serving big capital.
