Greece plans to launch in­ten­tional auc­tions for 10-year tele­vi­sion li­censes, gov­ern­ment of­fi­cials said yes­ter­day, as part of re­forms agreed with the coun­try’s in­ter­na­tional lenders un­der its third bailout. “Our aim is to ta­ble the bill tonight,” the of­fi­cials said. Gov­ern­ment spokes­woman Olga Gerovasili told the Athens-Mace­do­nian News Agency that the left-wing gov­ern­ment will sub­mit draft leg­is­la­tion to Par­lia­ment to “set or­der” on broadcasting li­cens­ing, which was a gov­ern­ment pledge. “The gov­ern­ment is ready to im­ple­ment this pledge to re­store a trans­par­ent land­scape on a pub­lic as­set such as [TV] fre­quen­cies,” Gerovasili said. multi-bil­lion-dol­lar project ex­pected to be­come one of the world’s busiest air hubs, has been de­layed un­til 2018, Turk­ish Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan said yes­ter­day. He gave no rea­son for the de­lay. The fa­cil­ity, to be built near Terkos Lake, had been sched­uled to open on Oc­to­ber 29, 2017 – the 94th an­niver­sary of the found­ing of mod­ern Turkey.
