Prime Min­is­ter An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras yes­ter­day clearly laid out the kind of dilem­mas fac­ing this coun­try and its peo­ple in view of the Euro­pean Par­lia­ment elec­tion sched­uled to take place in May. No one doubts that the months ahead will be tough. Both the coali­tion gov­ern­ment and the prime min­is­ter him­self must prove that they can si­mul­ta­ne­ously put up a tough fight in their ne­go­ti­a­tions with the troika and ad­vance de­ci­sively with the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the re­forms that the coun­try needs. As we all know, stag­na­tion doesn’t lead any­where. Sa­ma­ras has al­ready demon­strated that he is not the kind of man who gets trapped in in­er­tia. This is why, to­gether with a hand­ful of de­ter­mined cab­i­net min­is­ters, he must con­tinue on this gru­el­ing path, de­spite the steep gra­di­ent, the fa­tigue and so­ci­ety’s mis­trust.
