Parliament President N. Voutsis: I consider the four TV licenses as sufficient

Four licenses for nationwide broadcasters are sufficient for the country but the government will not put any pressure on the bodies and parties involved in the issue, Parliament President Nikos Voutsis was reported as telling “Agora” newspaper in an interview published on Saturday.

“I consider the four TV licenses as sufficient,” Voutsis was quoted as telling the paper. “We will take into account all factors – economic, technological and others, to determine the new TV landscape.”

Voutsis also criticized New Democracy for its stance on TV licenses, saying the main opposition didn’t really want a solution to the problem because it preferred to use it as a lever to “not just pressure, but degrade and destabilize the government.”
