The coalition government spokesperson Dimitris Tzanakopoulos announced that the government was pleased by the formation of a new National Council for Radio and Television (ESR) on Thursday, during a journalist briefing. Mr. Tzanakopoulos noted that the establishment of the Ministry of Digital Policy was necessary in order to rationalize expenditure.

Regarding the comments of IMF spokesperson Gerry Rice, Mr. Tzanakopoulos commented that they are “very close” to the Greek government’s positions. He also stressed that the coalition government’s aim is to complete the second bailout program review by 5 December.

The government spokesperson underlined the need to resolve the dispute between the National Bank of Greece and the Hellenic Financial Stability Fund, adding that the Greek government does not intervene in the appointment of bank managements.

Finally, when asked about the recent election of US President Donald Trump, Mr. Tzanakopoulos revealed that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras may possibly contact him over the next few days.
