No time for in­de­ci­sive­ness

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The Greek govern­ment is well aware of the fact that it needs to get over it­self and let go of its ob­ses­sions if it wants to wrap up the pend­ing bailout re­view. Prime Min­is­ter Alexis Tsipras finds him­self in ex­actly the same spot as his pre­de­ces­sors in the cri­sis, hav­ing to weigh the dam­age that his con­tin­ued pre­var­i­ca­tion will do to the coun­try against the cost to his po­lit­i­cal party of mak­ing a de­ci­sion. It is clear that the of­fi­cials re­spon­si­ble for the talks are per­fectly aware of how cru­cial the sit­u­a­tion is, but with­out Tsipras’s sup­port and sig­nal, they can­not make any im­por­tant de­ci­sions. The past two years have shown us that, cou­pled with end­less machi­na­tions and balanc­ing acts, in­de­ci­sive­ness comes at a very high price. It is now time for de­ci­sions, not the kind of ju­ve­nile be­hav­ior we’re see­ing in some pseudo-play­ful tweets.
