ND spokesman sternly attacks government on TV licenses
Main opposition New Democracy spokesman Giorgos Koumoutsakos during his press briefing referred to the TV licenses issue and accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of depriving the Greek National Council for Radio and Television (NCRTV) the responsibility to give licenses and transferring it to his government.
“Without explanation he arbitrarily decides to give four licenses. He moves beyond the Constitution and under the table,” stated Koumoutsakos and referred to an attempt of political polarization and division.
