3. In view of the foregoing, and bearing in mind that the chief objective of Leader II is the development of rural
areas, the Commission considers that the inclusion of two urban areas in the project of the Leader group
concerned would have entailed, in addition to the excessive overshooting of the abovementioned population
criterion, a straying from the objectives of Leader II and a dilution of government aid.
4. The operational plans of the project sponsors under Leader II in Greece were the subject of an independent
ex-ante evaluation prior to the Greek programme being approved by the Commission.

The selection terms and criteria of the various recipients, including the Leader group of the Epirus region, were
checked at that stage. Under these circumstances, the Commission has no intention of intervening to review the
choices made.

Moreover, in the light of what is stated above, it is not difficult to see why the partners concerned (local group,
regional and national authorities) did not include the towns of Ioannina and Igoumenitsa.
