No more smoke and mir­rors

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Any spec­u­la­tion that the up­com­ing snap elec­tions may fail to pro­duce a gov­ern­ment and may have to be fol­lowed by a sec­ond round of polling must be laid to rest, par­tic­u­larly by the par­ties vy­ing for power. The con­se­quences of such an out­come would be noth­ing short of dev­as­tat­ing for the coun­try. The like­li­hood that any of the main par­ties will be able to com­mand a par­lia­men­tary ma­jor­ity in Greece’s 300seat House ap­pears in­creas­ingly un­likely with each day that goes by. It is cru­cial that ev­ery party hop­ing to win the elec­tions and form a gov­ern­ment makes it per­fectly clear who it plans to gov­ern with and what kind of coali­tion and pro­gram it has in mind be­fore Greeks cast their bal­lots. The vot­ers of this coun­try need clear an­swers. They need to know their op­tions ahead of the polls. So-called cre­ative am­bi­gu­ity is no longer ac­cept­able to the peo­ple, who have al­ready paid such a hefty price be­cause of it.
