Curb­ing op­po­si­tion

Kathimerini English - - Focus -

The gov­ern­ment needs to wrap up the re­view by in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors of the third bailout agree­ment if the coun­try hopes to re­turn to some sem­blance of nor­mal­ity. Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras ap­pears to be firmly com­mit­ted to this goal. Nev­er­the­less, we are still see­ing strange things go­ing on, such as the facts that min­is­ters whose only aim is to sab­o­tage cru­cial ar­eas of the re­view re­main in the cab­i­net fol­low­ing last week’s reshuf­fle. The prime min­is­ter will need to dis­play sig­nif­i­cant po­lit­i­cal force so that such ob­jec­tions to the progress of talks are put to bed and so that this cab­i­net does not de­gen­er­ate into a ca­coph­ony of op­pos­ing voices, just like the pre­vi­ous one. There is no need to stress that there is very lit­tle time and very lit­tle room for ma­neu­vers.
