Two ma­jor ques­tions

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Greek Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras ap­pears to be aware of the se­ri­ous­ness of the sit­u­a­tion and of the need to com­plete the cur­rent re­view and the re­cap­i­tal­iza­tion of the coun­try’s banks as quickly as pos­si­ble. How­ever, two ma­jor ques­tions re­main. The first con­cerns Tsipras’s abil­ity to stop the war that has been waged by sev­eral min­is­ters and law­mak­ers against pri­va­ti­za­tions and other im­por­tant mea­sures. The sec­ond ques­tion is whether the present gov­ern­ment has the ex­pe­ri­ence and know-how to ac­tu­ally push through such a com­pli­cated and de­mand­ing plan in such a short pe­riod of time. Right now it ap­pears that the prime min­is­ter does not know the an­swers to these two ques­tions, but if he doesn’t fig­ure it out soon, Greece will end up back on the brink and talk about a Grexit will re­turn to the dis­cus­sion ta­ble. It is ev­ery­one’s hope at this point that Tsipras does not fail, be­cause that would be some­thing nei­ther the econ­omy nor so­ci­ety as a whole could face.
