So­ci­ety wants re­forms

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Un­like what some crit­ics like to think, peo­ple do know what they want, re­gard­less of what their politi­cians wish or how they be­have. The pub­lic has de­manded that univer­si­ties re­main open and op­er­ate with­out pock­ets of law­less­ness and vi­o­lence, and this is what it will get – al­beit not with­out some set­backs. Sim­i­larly, peo­ple thought that al­low­ing stores to open on Sun­days, or at least on some Sun­days, was a wel­come de­vel­op­ment and they have shown that to be so. Peo­ple want to break with the coun­try’s dys­func­tional past and they choose to throw their weight be­hind the nec­es­sary changes and re­forms when the politi­cians dare to in­tro­duce them. All of this should serve as a re­minder to Greece’s con­ser­va­tiveled coali­tion, which has trou­ble see­ing through the re­form agenda it has made a com­mitt­ment to.
