ND needs to shake off past

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The lead­er­ship of New Democ­racy needs to show that it is se­ri­ous about im­ple­ment­ing much-needed re­forms in its pre-elec­tion cam­paign. The peo­ple who vote for the con­ser­va­tive party are clearly pro-Europe and be­lieve in the need for deep changes in Greek so­ci­ety and the state. It will take de­ter­mi­na­tion to get New Democ­racy’s politi­cians and of­fi­cials who be­long to the past, who re­mind peo­ple of a by­gone era and put them off sup­port­ing the party to bow out of the elec­toral race and tele­vi­sion de­bates. The present lead­er­ship of the con­ser­va­tives may only be tem­po­rary but it car­ries an enor­mous re­spon­si­bil­ity which so far it has man­aged quite well. The ques­tion now is not just how to win back party sup­port­ers but also how the party can do bet­ter in rep­re­sent­ing the vast ma­jor­ity of Greeks who want to see Greece re­main in the core of Europe.
