    [02] No problem with the supply of market with fresh produce says Fotiades

    Rotating street markets in the greater Athens area, mostly comprised of fresh produce and fruit stands, remained no where to be found on Wednesday as individual producers and outdoor greengrocers continued their strike this week.

    Vendors at the street markets &#8211; for decades the traditional shopping venue for Greek urban families&#8217; fruits and vegetable purchases &#8211; are protesting a recent government decision to force some of them selling primarily non-food items such as kitchen utensil, linen and clothing) to ring up sales on cash register machines.

    Striking stall vendors and producers also tried to continue their roadblocks of toll stations leading to the Greek capital, part of their efforts to block shipments by wholesalers. However, riot police at the Elefsina toll station, west of Athens on the highway leading to the Peloponnese, kept protestors at bay earlier in the day.

    Meanwhile, Finance Deputy Minister Apostolos Fotiades stated to NET 105.8 that there is no problem with the supply of the market with fresh produce. He also described the producers and sellers&#8217; decision to stop their mobilisations as positive, adding that the use of tills will protect merchants and consumers.

    Finally, the government assured that the use of cash registers concerns only 4% of the sellers and will not extend to the sellers of agricultural products.

    The cabinet will meet today to discuss the Interior Ministry&#8217;s proposal according to which not enlisted voters will be allowed to be enlisted in electoral registers even on the last day of the elections.

    Meanwhile, Interior Minister Costas Scandalides stated that about 200,000 Athenians will vote in different areas of those they are residing, blaming the municipal authorities for that, and adding that 400 taxis and 137 mini busses will be used for the transfer of those voters.

    From its side, the Athens Municipality replied by saying that the government is the one that is responsible for that.

    [06] Koffi Anan to meet Klerides & Denktash

    Despite the fact that Turkish &#8211; Cypriot representative Rauf Denktash was hospitalised in a New York hospital today with pain on the chest, discussions over the Cyprus issue will continue according to schedule.

    United Nations Secretary General Koffi Anan will first have separate meetings with the President of the Cyprus Republic Glafkos Klerides and then with Mr Denktash and lastly will have dinner with both men at 19:00.

    On a relative development, during his address to the Parliamentary Committee of Defence and Foreign Affairs, Foreign Minister George Papandreou said that it would be difficult for a solution of the Cyprus issue to be found on the basis of the present circumstances. At the same time, he confirmed information according to which Mr Annan may submit a new peace plan after Turkish elections.
