ΚΚΕ: We will not ‘take part in bargaining and games’ over media pie

The Communist Party of Greece (KKE) on Saturday dismissed the disagreements between the SYRIZA-led ruling coalition and main opposition New Democracy over the television licences and the National Council for Radio and Television (NCRTV) as an attempt to disorient the voters.

“They have promoted [this issue] to the ‘mother of all battles’ in order to hide their strategic agreement on all the other serious and crucial issues that make the lives of the people more difficult. KKE will not take part in the bargains and games whose main goal is to redistribute the media pie and decide who prevails in this redistribution,” a party announcement said.
