It’s wait and see for now
Reshuffles rarely solve the political or practical problems dogging a government; in most cases they simply accelerate developments. Friday’s reshuffle by Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was no exception. It was the product of political exchange and a quest to restore balance inside the party. The country needs a government that will move on boldly with reforms and privatizations, that will attract investments and that will have a unifying rather than divisive role. It will soon become clear whether there is even a remote chance of something like this happening or whether we’re entering a fresh period of unpredictable developments.
