Toe­ing the line

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

There are min­is­ters and deputies in the coali­tion gov­ern­ment who dis­agree with the com­mit­ments that Greece has made to its in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors yet un­der­stand how im­por­tant it is that these com­mit­ments be hon­ored and are ready to do the work re­quired. These of­fi­cials know that the guer­rilla war be­ing fought by some of their col­leagues within the ranks of the rul­ing left­ist party is gnaw­ing away at the gov­ern­ment’s credibility and weak­en­ing its ne­go­ti­a­tion po­si­tion. The naysay­ers in­side SYRIZA are the weak link in the nar­ra­tive the prime min­is­ter is try­ing to pro­mote con­cern­ing Greece’s com­plete re­cov­ery and full re­turn to cap­i­tal mar­kets. The sad truth is that no one be­lieves this gov­ern­ment will push through the nec­es­sary re­forms and im­prove sen­ti­ment when it can­not even en­sure that its of­fi­cials fol­low the same line.
