Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The new mem­bers of the Na­tional Broad­cast­ing Coun­cil (ESR) will be sworn in on Mon­day by Par­lia­ment Speaker Nikos Vout­sis. Agree­ment over the com­po­si­tion of the coun­cil was fi­nally struck by po­lit­i­cal par­ties ear­lier in the month af­ter sev­eral failed at­tempts. The deal is ex­pected to pave the way for­ward af­ter the country’s top ad­min­is­tra­tive court, the Coun­cil of State, ruled that a gov­ern­ment auc­tion of tele­vi­sion li­censes was un­con­sti­tu­tional. The dead­lock was bro­ken af­ter par­ties agreed that more than just four li­censes will be granted, as was the gov­ern­ment’s ini­tial plan.
