ND Spokesman: New TV Licenses Celebrate 'Corruption'

“The government is celebrating today the definition of corruption,” said main opposition New Democracy (ND) spokesman Giorgos Koumoutsakos commenting on the result of the TV licensing tender.
New Democracy has tabled a proposal with the Greek National Council for Radio and Television playing a central role while using the digital spectrum without a predetermined number of channels. If the proposal had been implemented, we would have more democracy, more information, more channels and higher revenues,” he added.
Koumoutsakos accused the government that chose the way of arbitrariness granting a limited number of licenses and excluding the Greek National Council for Radio and Television from the process.
Referring to the price of the licenses, he said: “The price was high, so high that raises questions. One gives 40, another one gives 70 and the other one who has offered 60 did not get a license. Oligopoly, especially in the media, bears the seed of corruption.”
