Op­po­si­tion New Democ­racy’s pre­sen­ta­tion of its sug­ges­tions to help boost the econ­omy con­tained sev­eral in­ter­est­ing and pos­i­tive el­e­ments. The main area of in­ter­est was that it em­pha­sized the pri­vate sec­tor and eco­nomic growth, in con­trast to the rul­ing party, which views busi­nesses as noth­ing more than a bot­tom­less well from which to draw taxes. Mean­while, the fact that op­po­si­tion leader An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras sup­ported the sale of state real es­tate as­sets, as well as cer­tain pri­va­ti­za­tions, cre­ates the im­pres­sion that there is hope for New Democ­racy to back the gov­ern­ment’s ef­forts in this direc­tion. Sa­ma­ras cov­ered a lot of ground in his sec­ond pre­sen­ta­tion at Zappeio Hall com­pared to his last one, called Zappeio 1, and the gov­ern­ment would do well to ac­cept cer­tain po­si­tions pre­sented at Zappeio 2. Agree­ing with the coun­try’s main op­po­si­tion party on cer­tain points will help the gov­ern­ment to pro­ject an im­age of con­sen­sus and bol­ster the coun­try’s in­ter­na­tional cred­i­bil­ity on the eve of cru­cial ne­go­ti­a­tions with our in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors.
