Sta­bil­ity is the key

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

There is noth­ing to be gained from po­lit­i­cal par­ties abus­ing one another. Greece has al­ready suf­fered enough from politi­cians who are bent on get­ting to power by dis­parag­ing their op­po­nents at ev­ery op­por­tu­nity and mak­ing prom­ises that they can­not pos­si­bly ful­fill. Even in re­cent times, the coun­try could have avoided a mul­ti­tude of prob­lems and much heartache if its key po­lit­i­cal play­ers had man­aged to reach some kind of con­sen­sus on the fun­da­men­tal is­sues. This year rep­re­sents a turn­ing point for Greece. The econ­omy is fi­nally show­ing signs that it can re­bound and start grow­ing once more. But for this to hap­pen, we need the coun­try’s politi­cians to take the mat­ter se­ri­ously and to be more level-headed in their ap­proach to each other. If Greece is al­lowed to be­come a po­lit­i­cal bat­tle­field where any­thing goes, we will be kiss­ing any chance of re­cov­ery good­bye. With­out po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity and a ba­sic level of cross-party con­sen­sus, no coun­try can re­ally move for­ward.
