Profli­gacy and cyn­i­cism

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The leftist-led ad­min­is­tra­tion knows, and much from its own first­hand ex­pe­ri­ence, just how much the pub­lic sec­tor is in im­me­di­ate need of eval­u­a­tion and a re­or­ga­ni­za­tion of its ser­vices. De­spite rec­og­niz­ing this, the govern­ment con­tin­ues to mol­ly­cod­dle its par­ti­san clients, cre­at­ing the im­pres­sion that any­thing and every­thing is tol­er­a­ble, even open guer­rilla war­fare against eval­u­a­tions. The cyn­i­cism of this govern­ment is par­tic­u­larly ap­par­ent when it comes to the way the is­sue seems to have been swept un­der the car­pet now, de­spite hav­ing been de­clared a ma­jor is­sue in the past. Amid all of the profli­gacy and cyn­i­cism, some­thing that’s dogged us for a very long time now and given the coun­try a bad rep­u­ta­tion, we will lose yet an­other chance for things to change for the bet­ter in the pub­lic sec­tor. Is that some­thing we want to con­tinue fac­ing in the years and decades to come?
