Dan­ger­ous uncer­tain­ties

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greece can­not af­ford a re­turn to 2012 now the econ­omy has fi­nally started to grow. How­ever, lin­ger­ing un­cer­tainty – fu­eled by the shame­less ir­re­spon­si­bil­ity of the left­ist op­po­si­tion and the con­ser­va­tive-led coali­tion’s own goals – is un­der­min­ing much-needed po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity. Mean­while, the geopo­lit­i­cal risks in the broader re­gion abound. For­eign in­vestors are tempted to leave Greece be­cause no one can be sure about who will be in charge of the coun­try in a few months from now or what sort of pol­icy they will adopt. If we want to avoid putting ev­ery­thing at risk, then we must clear the hur­dle of the pres­i­den­tial elec­tion and reach a deal with our cred­i­tors that will se­cure the coun­try’s fi­nanc­ing. The gov­ern­ment seems tired, per­haps too tired. It needs a rad­i­cal shake-up and fresh goals, beyond its sur­vival. Be­fore that, of course, it will have to clear the hur­dle.
