  • [01] Parliament's investigation into media, party loans to conclude with final vote on Monday

    The work of a Parliamentary investigating committee looking into the legality of bank loans given to political parties and media companies will conclude on Monday evening with a vote on the final proposals put forward by the political parties. After the vote, the committee will immediately deliver its report to Parliament President Nikos Voutsis.

    As Voutsis earlier announced, a debate on the report before the plenum will take place on Wednesday week, on February 1, while the relevant request signed by 60 MPs - as required by Parliament rules - is expected to be submitted on Tuesday.

    [02] FinMin's letter does not outline positions Greece will present at Eurogroup, sources say

    Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos will attend the Eurogoup on January 26 and present specific positions on the remaining outstanding issues for completing the second review of Greece's adjustment programme, finance ministry sources said on Monday.

    They said the Greek government had informed the institutions about this in a letter from Tsakalotos, while clarifying that the letter did not include the positions of the Greek side.

    [03] Protesting farmers block Ionian Highway near Arta

    Protesting farmers and livestock breeders blocked the Ionian Highway at Agios Dimitrios near Arta on Monday, after a rally and motorised tractor protest in the city. Traffic has been diverted ontot side roads while the farmers declared their determination to close the road "indefinitely" and said their road block was part of a nationwide farmers' committee with which they were coordinating their actions.

    Meanwhile, at a roadblock set up by farmers at the town of Louros, farmers were "organising to stay" according to the head of the Preveza farmers's federation Spyros Klinakis.
