Tan­gi­ble re­sults

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The mayor of Athens, Gior­gos Kami­nis, is an honor­able politi­cian who has shown per­se­ver­ance and vigor in the face of tough times. We do not have very many politi­cians in Greece ca­pa­ble of com­bin­ing ethos with bold­ness th­ese days. How­ever, Kami­nis was elected to gov­ern the na­tion’s cap­i­tal, and we can’t ig­nore the fact that the city’s im­age leaves a lot to be de­sired. There­fore, it would be good for Kami­nis – be­fore he thrusts him­self onto the na­tional po­lit­i­cal stage by con­test­ing the lead­er­ship of the PASOK party – to show tan­gi­ble re­sults of what he is ca­pa­ble of achiev­ing in a high po­si­tion of po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship. The prob­lems with clean­li­ness, among oth­ers, are a ma­jor source of mis­ery for both city res­i­dents and vis­i­tors and a so­lu­tion has yet to be found for them by the man whom Athe­ni­ans elected for that very rea­son.
