  • [01] Greece's proposal will be accepted by lenders, review will close, says parliament head

    Parliament President Nikos Voutsis expressed his optimism on Thursday that Greece's proposal on how to complete the negotiations with the country's lenders will be accepted and the program review will conclude, during an interview with private radio station Vima FM.

    "It [the negotiations] will have a good conclusion … I'm optimistic that the review will be concluded with the acceptance of the Greek proposal," he was quoted as saying.

    Commenting on the contingent measures demanded by the institutions to complete the review, he said: "It's not that we cannot [pass the measures]; we don't want to pass them."

    Voutsis also said that any government that would pass such measures would risk losing investments, because it would be similar to admitting in advance that economic targets will not be met.

    [02] Special shop opening hours for Easter, followed by interim sales

    Shops will keep special opening hours in the days leading up to Easter Sunday, when all shops will remain closed for three days until the following Wednesday. On Good Friday, shops will open from 13:00 to 19:00 and on Holy Saturday from 9:00 in the morning until 15:00. Supermarkets, malls, department stores and chain stores can stay open from 13:00 until 21:00 on Good Friday and from 9:00 in the morning until 20:00 at night on Holy Saturday.

    All shops are closed on Easter Sunday, Easter Monday and Tuesday, due to the transfer of the May 1st Labour Day holiday.

    The 10-day interim sales period begins on May 4, immediately after the Labour Day holiday, with shops having the option of staying open on the following Sunday, May 8, from 11:00 until 20:00.
