Council of State starts its fifth deliberation over the government’s TV licensing law

The Council of State started on Wednesday afternoon its fifth deliberation over the government’s TV licensing law.

During today’s session, judges are expected to debate the constitutionality of the law which transferred the powers of the TV regulator (Greek National Council for Radio and Television -NCRTV) to the State Minister Nikos Pappas.

According to judicial sources, it is possible the court will not issue a final ruling, but a temporary one, that would give the government time to set up NCRTV’S new board and then convene again to discuss the issue anew.
It is also not certain that this will be the court’s last session on the issue.
