Council of State to convene over TV permits Wednesday, Friday


Greece’s Council of State, the country’s highest administrative court, was expected to convene on Wednesday and Friday to decide on the constitutionality of a recent competition carried out by the coalition government for four national television channel permits.

A previous conference was cancelled by the court’s head Nikos Sakellariou, leading two of the court’s members to resign from their union.

The court has already rejected appeals by several TV channels against the recent auction.
