The Special Committee that will carry out the tender has sent to the nine candidates an individual entry form in the auction, which will take place Tuesday, August 30, 2016 in the building of the General Secretariat of Information and Communication, Fragoudi 11 and Al. Pantos, Kallithea.

“The General Secretariat of Information and Communication will continue to serve its institutional role in order to protect the public interest. The General Secretariat of Information and Communication is not involved in creating impressions games and is accountable only to the people. We remind that it posts to ‘Clarity’ all administrative acts and decisions taken”, says in a statement the General Secretary of Information, Lefteris Kretsis.

“The myths, speculations, arbitrary conclusions, erudite irrelevances and science fiction scenarios simply show that some have decided to counterfeit the truth, aiming at the non-conduct of the competition and the systematic deception of citizens”, he says and adds: “the effort of the government refers to the issuing of legal television licenses after 27 years of lawlessness and violation of basic principles of the rule of law. We continue in this direction and the contest will end in a few days with success and with absolute transparency. This will have to be realized by those who still defend the lawlessness in the broadcasting landscape. The lies are over”.
