  • [01] SYRIZA attacks ND, PASOK over the privatisation of power grid operator ADMHE

    ANA-MPA -- Main opposition leftist SYRIZA party attacked New Democracy and PASOK on Tuesday regarding the bill on the privatisation of the country's Independent Power Transmission Operator (ADMHE), which the government has submitted to the Parliament. "New Democracy and PASOK will be held accountable for the crime," SYRIZA said in a statement. According to SYRIZA, the government wants the discussion on the issue to be concluded in just three meetings held by the production and trade Parliamentary committee and then submit it to the plenary for voting. New Democracy and PASOK "aim, by using a short process that annuls any kind of Parliamentary and social control, to sell off key public infrastructure, built through decades of sacrifices by the Greek people, in the space of a few days." SYRIZA said that a private strategic investor would have only one target, to maximize profit. It noted that international experience had been revealing: "after last year's bid to acquire ADMHE, the Chinese state electricity company acquired the Portuguese operator (2012). Since then, not even one euro has been invested in Portugal's transmission grid," SYRIZA said.
