Hor­ror vacui

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

New Democ­racy, Greece’s con­ser­va­tive party, is in need of rad­i­cal restruc­tur­ing as well as fresh lead­er­ship. Af­ter all, this is why it has de­cided to hold a lead­er­ship con­test. The point of the race is not to cause fur­ther po­lit­i­cal dam­age. It will take a great deal of self-dis­ci­pline and re­spon­si­bil­ity on the part of all four can­di­dates (and other key play­ers in­side the party) to make sure the pro­ce­dure which is set to take place over two rounds next month does not end up be­ing a huge fi­asco. The signs so far have not been very en­cour­ag­ing. All that is hap­pen­ing at a time when the coun­try is at a very cru­cial junc­ture. A large sec­tion of so­ci­ety is ea­ger to see a more ef­fi­cient and con­struc­tive op­po­si­tion vis-a-vis the left­ist-led gov­ern­ment, and for this rea­son ex­pects more from ND. If the con­ser­va­tives fail to live up to peo­ple’s ex­pec­ta­tions, we will in­evitably be re­minded of the fact that na­ture ab­hors a vac­uum.
