  • [01] New Democracy says it doesn't recognize the TV licensing tender

    New Democracy does not recognize or accept the government's tender to auction off four nationwide broadcasting licenses, the party said in a press release on Thursday.

    The statement follows a presentation earlier in the day of the software that will be used in the tender at the general secretariat of Information and Communications, to which ND presented strong objections.

    "New Democracy will not recognize, legitimize or accept a tender in which the National Council for Radio and Television (NCRTV) is not involved, directly violating the Constitution," ND said.

    "The government of [Alexis] Tsipras and [Panos] Kammenos is implementing an unprecedented plan to control the Media, building 'bridges of intertwining interests' with the old and new TV channel owners. They have no interest whatsoever in observing the law but instead attempts to manipulate the Media," the party added.

    [02] No risk to public health from malaria outbreaks, says health minister

    There are no risks to public health in Greece and blood banks are sufficiently stocked, Health Minister Andreas Xanthos said on Thursday after a meeting with health services, responding to reports on lower blood donations and the extra measures taken to prevent further malaria outbreaks.

    "Based on epidemiological data, the country is safe, as it is clear from the scientific opinions and evaluations, and blood donation is completely safe and we have adequate blood," he said.

    Commenting on malaria, Xanthos said the outbreaks are sporadic and are not a cause for concern. "There's no health 'time bomb' in the country … we managed a huge, unprecedented flow of populations and said from the start we would not allow the refugee issue to be turned into a public health issue. We achieved that," he added.
