The nation will follow in the footsteps of other European Union members like France and Italy in an effort to comply with EU policy.  Greece is also looking to raise funds to cover its 110 billion euro EU/IMF bailout.

"The bill is expected to be voted within the first quarter of the year," the official, who has direct knowledge of the government plans, said on condition of anonymity. "Our aim is to tender the licences by the end of the year."
