The Coun­cil of State’s ple­nary ses­sion yes­ter­day pub­lished the de­ci­sion of the court which found that the law on which the govern­ment auc­tion for the tele­vi­sion li­censes was based con­tra­venes Greece’s Con­sti­tu­tion. Ac­cord­ing to the de­ci­sion, the law, brought by for­mer state min­is­ter Nikos Pap­pas, went against Ar­ti­cle 15 of the Con­sti­tu­tion. The Coun­cil of State, which is the coun­try’s high­est ad­min­is­tra­tive court, had reached the de­ci­sion in Oc­to­ber with a ma­jor­ity of 14 to 11. Ear­lier in the day, Pap­pas, now min­is­ter for dig­i­tal pol­icy, said that Greek TV chan­nels would have to pay a fee for tem­po­rary li­censes un­til a new ten­der is or­ga­nized, this time by the Na­tional Broad­cast­ing Coun­cil (ESR).
