Television licensing procedure will be ready soon
A process for licensing the televised media was now in the final stages of preparation and will soon be ready to begin, Minister of State Nikos Pappas said on Monday in an interview with the Greek radio station “Sto Kokkino”.
“The procedures for putting together the National Council for Radio and Television are fully underway and on a positive track and very soon we will have the licensing procedure, which will impose order on the television scene after 25 years,” he said.
He said the law for the broadcasting media will mark a passage from “inactivity and silent consent to unaccountability,” to establishing a clear set of rules, which included fees for use of frequencies, implementing tax laws for advertising and now the law on television licences.
He expressed hope that the main opposition will contribute to a speedy formation of the council for the broadcast media.
