Re­vis­ing the rule book

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The re­vi­sion of the Greek Con­sti­tu­tion is a top pri­or­ity on the na­tional agenda. It is also the kind of process for which the coali­tion gov­ern­ment ought to en­list the best peo­ple avail­able in the coun­try. It is en­cour­ag­ing to ob­serve that the pro­pos­als put for­ward by the con­ser­va­tive New Democ­racy party with re­gards to changes in the Con­sti­tu­tion come across as cut­tingedge sug­ges­tions of sub­stance. Fol­low­ing years of re­ces­sion, what the Greek peo­ple are ex­pect­ing from the po­lit­i­cal sys­tem which rep­re­sents them is sweep­ing changes of the kind which will demon­strate that things are re­ally chang­ing in the coun­try and the Con­sti­tu­tion re­vi­sion dis­cus­sion is not another case of “business as usual.” The re­vi­sion of the Greek Con­sti­tu­tion is a very se­ri­ous mat­ter and an op­por­tu­nity that should not go to waste.
