Let go of the past

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The way things have evolved in Greece, New Democ­racy is ar­guably the only party ca­pa­ble of safe­guard­ing the coun­try’s Euro­pean fu­ture. The con­ser­va­tive party’s ap­peal can and should reach be­yond its tra­di­tional par­ti­san and ide­o­log­i­cal bound­aries be­cause vot­ers that did not cast their bal­lot for it the last elec­tions are now in search of a dy­namic, pro-Euro­pean party to vote for when a new round of elec­tions is called. The party should not make the mis­takes of the past and ap­pear as though the only thing it is ca­pa­ble of do­ing is re­cy­cling the same old peo­ple and ideas. This is not the way for New Democ­racy to win over the Greeks. On the con­trary. Now is the time for the party to con­vince Greek vot­ers that it has the ap­pro­pri­ate peo­ple and a plan to gov­ern the coun­try. Be­sides, judg­ing from the ex­pe­ri­ence of the re­cent ref­er­en­dum, iden­ti­fy­ing with the old po­lit­i­cal staff only leads to de­feat.
