  • [01] The tender for TV licences safeguards the interests of the State, Pappas says

    "In order to safeguard the interests of the State in a tender, the information among the competitors must be prevented. That is why the procedure was planned this way," State Minister Nikos Pappas said on Tuesday in an interview with public broadcaster ERT in reply to comments on the strict rules imposed.

    "The current tender, pursuant to the Constitution, ensures that it will maximize the price for the Greek government and the conditions will be clear," he underlined.

    Asked to comment on the stance of the main opposition that it does not recognize the tender, the State Minister stressed that "New Democracy must change this position today."

    "I think it is an insult to the intelligence of the Greek citizen and that is why it needs to state immediately that it will recognize the result of the competition," he said and added: "This tender will award for the first time in Greece legal licences, and the identification of New Democracy with some very specific and particular interests is, I think, very negative."

    For those who criticize the government for not waiting for the Council of State's decision, Pappas said: "We respect the justice and we hold the tender based on the Constitution."
