Restricting TV Channels to Four will Reduce Diversity in the Media, ND's Hatzidakis Says

Costis ChatzidakisWith just four television channels broadcasting, competition and diversity in the media will be adversely affected while the state will lose an estimated 30 million in revenues for each channel every year, main opposition New Democracy’s Vice-President Kostis Hatzidakis said in an interview with Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) on Sunday. He accused Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras of doing the opposite of all he promised at the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) two years ago, such as on the issue of non-performing loans.
The country lacked governance and was in a state of chaos, with the weakest in society bearing the brunt of the problems, Hatzidakis said. “Paradoxically, in relation to the expectations that it cultivated, the only thing that we can expect from this government is that we will remain in the memorandums for ever,” he said, stressing the need for the country to get a “new start.”
“We don’t promise miracles. We do, however, promise to follow the path followed by other countries, such as Ireland and Cyprus, who were in memorandums and exited,” Hatzidakis added, while dismissing talk of ND “infighting.” “ND is proceeding united. The problems will henceforth be faced by SYRIZA,” he said.
