‘Main shareholder’ law

At this time, where do things stand for you on the «main shareholder» law? Transparency is still our firm goal. The European Commission and its president, Jose Manuel Barroso, told us for a second time that our political direction is correct and that they are in absolute agreement. Having said that, a question has arisen regarding the compatibility of not only one law, but the entirety of the relevant Greek legislation – that is, the previous law as well. So, together with the Commission, as I have said before, we are seeking common ground, therefore certain amendments. What has not changed is the political decision and our stance on questions of transparency. Do you think the government has an argument on the purely legislative level? Of course it does and it has presented that argument. The process is continuing. At the same time, the government is ensuring that EU resources are not being lost.
