The new board of Greece’s TV regulator, the National Council for Radio and Television (NCRTV), will have full financial and technical support for its operation, Digital Policy Minister Nikos Pappas said on Monday during a meeting with NCRTV’s new heads.

“I gave the leadership of the Council my personal commitment on behalf of the government that they will have full support, both on a financial level and in terms of human resources,” he said after meeting NCRTV president Athanasios Koutroumanos and vice-chair Rodolfos Moronis.

“I noted that our work to regulate the television landscape is under the watchful eye of the Greek society and democracy itself, which demand of us to speed up the procedures for the licensing of the private television stations,” he added.
