President of the Hellenic Republic Prokopis Pavlopoulos on Tuesday received Minister of State Nikos Pappas and Infrastructure, Transport and Networks Minister Christos Spirtzis at the presidential mansion, for a meeting focusing on a recently passed law regulating the issue of television broadcasting licences.

He highlighted the need to ensure an independent media with a diversity of voices in conditions of fair competition, while combatting phenomena of intertwined interests and graft.

The ministers briefed the president on aspects of the recently passed law, who noted that the regulation of television licences was an issue that had troubled the country’s public life for many years.

“I hope and wish that implementation of the newly drafted legislation will at last lead to the final establishment of a stable legal framework for the operation of the electronic media, in accordance with the spirit of the Constitution,” Pavlopoulos said.
