Up­set­ting the bal­ance

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The gov­ern­ment’s plan for elec­toral re­form that fore­sees a sim­ple sys­tem of pro­por­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tion should not be al­lowed to pass through Par­lia­ment. Such a change would un­der­mine any prospect of po­lit­i­cal sta­bil­ity and el­e­vate smaller par­ties into king­mak­ers, some­thing that would be par­tic­u­larly harm­ful if these par­ties rep­re­sent ex­treme views or are the prod­uct of pow­er­ful in­ter­ests. Such games are the last thing that Greece needs right now as it strug­gles to get back on an even keel.
