Dendias: New Democracy will abolish law on TV licences

New Democracy will abolish the law on TV licences even if the State of Council does not cancel the tender, main opposition parliamentary spokesman Nikos Dendias said in an interview with Agora newspaper.

"Our position does not change. Even if the State of Council does not cancel the tender - which is highly unlikely - the law on TV licences will be abolished", he said.

Dendias disputed the government's optimism on the state of the economy, noting that "the government follows a policy mix which is impossible to lead, even in the medium term, to an improvement of the economic situation".

On bad loans, he estimated that there was room for negotiation to avoid their transfer to funds. Regarding the debt, he said that no serious discussion can be made before the German elections adding that the debt relief issue was included in the Eurogroup resolutions of 27/11/2012.
