Pro­tect­ing in­sti­tu­tions

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A nation’s en­durance and sur­vival are de­pen­dent on the dura­bil­ity and strength of its in­sti­tu­tions. When po­lit­i­cal lead­ers abuse their coun­try’s in­sti­tu­tions for their own short­term in­ter­ests, it does not take long for bad things to start hap­pen­ing. Those who are and have been in gov­ern­ment have had an ob­vi­ous lack of care, but also con­tempt for the in­sti­tu­tions. They con­sider them to be ob­sta­cles to their plans or strongholds that need to be im­proved by in­stalling their own peo­ple to run them. Right now Greece is not just go­ing back­wards, but way back­wards when it comes to this is­sue. Thank­fully there are of­fi­cials who are coura­geous and tena­cious in their fight to pro­tect these vi­tal in­sti­tu­tions. They’re not do­ing this for the sake of any po­lit­i­cal party. They are do­ing it be­cause they re­spect their role and rec­og­nize the dan­gers of their com­plete dis­in­te­gra­tion.
