Send­ing out a clear mes­sage

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The time has come for the gov­ern­ment to send out a clear mes­sage. What the ad­min­is­tra­tion needs to do is se­lect which re­forms it con­sid­ers to be of sub­stance as well as re­al­is­tic and sub­se­quently put up a fight for them. If the coun­try’s lenders opt for their ir­ra­tional ex­cesses and show no sign of flex­i­bil­ity they will have to bear the re­spon­si­bil­ity of their choices. If cer­tain Greek deputies choose to sacrifice the coun­try’s re­cov­ery and sta­bil­ity over vested in­ter­ests, the weight of his­tor­i­cal re­spon­si­bil­ity will rest on their shoul­ders, but clearly the gov­ern­ment will have fallen be­cause of a wor­thy cause it be­lieved in. The econ­omy is show­ing en­cour­ag­ing signs. The Greek peo­ple have ev­ery right to feel angry and at the same time scared as they don’t feel they can trust another party or leader at such a dif­fi­cult time. In or­der for them to change their minds and throw their support be­hind the gov­ern­ment, the ad­min­is­tra­tion must per­suade them that its sense of di­rec­tion and mis­sion is right and put an end to pop­ulism and ghastly han­dling in ar­eas such as ed­u­ca­tion. There is very lit­tle time left.
