Have the new investment options for Greek Golden Visas been delayed?

I read some news online about all the other ways to obtain Golden Visas other than buying real estate getting delayed until later this year. What is going on? Can I still apply for those other options? Please advise.

    The Greek government, in order to improve and supplement the current resident permit scheme for third-country nationals investing in Greece (the Golden Visa), voted recently a legal amendment which extends the scope of the existing scheme by adding intangible investments to investment activities for which a permanent resident permit may be issued to third-country nationals. Joint ministerial decisions of the ministers of migration policy, economy and development and, where appropriate, foreign affairs, deal in particular with issues of application of the above provisions. Now in Greece, elections for a new government are about to take place. We have to wait for a while for the new guidelines. After the issuance of the related circulars the participation of the investors could be feasible.
