Council of ministers to discuss shopping hours

The council of ministers will hold their last meeting of the year on Monday at the presidential retreat in Troodos, where they will discuss taking the issue of shopping hours to the Supreme Court.

On December 10 the House of Representatives rejected a government bill that would liberalise shopping hours, allowing most of them to remain open on a Sunday.

According to a letter written by the attorney general, their action in unconstitutional and he recommends the matter be taken to the Supreme Court.

On December 3 the Supreme Court ruled that defining shopping hours was a matter for the state not MPs.

At the same meeting the Council of Ministers is expected to renew ENI/KOGAS rights in blocks 2, 3 and 9 for a further two years.
