  e-mail
Productive Reconstruction, Environment and Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis, speaking to SKAI TV, announced the decision of the new government to immediately stop any privatization of Public Power Corporation (PPC) and the Independent Power Transmission Operator (ADMIE).

"We will try to reduce the electricity tariffs and boost competitiveness in an effort to help the Greek households," he said, AMNA reported.

Lafazanis reiterated the same statements to Mega TV. "The issue is not to sell PPC in order to boost budget revenues, because the cost of these revenues is too high," he stressed and announced the immediate launch of the programme of free electricity to those in need.

Asked whether these announcements will trigger problems in the negotiations with the European partners, he said that the government is held accountable only to the Greek people that have elected it.
