Im­passe on the hori­zon

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Ev­ery­thing that is hap­pen­ing both on and – es­pe­cially – off the stage of Greek pol­i­tics is un­prece­dented and sad. Po­lit­i­cal par­ties are be­ing pulled apart, law­mak­ers have turned their sup­port and their seat in Par­lia­ment into bar­gain­ing chips, and the po­lit­i­cal land­scape grows in­creas­ingly toxic and un­cer­tain with ev­ery day that passes. The dam­age that is be­ing caused by this in­sta­bil­ity and what is in­creas­ingly look­ing like a long pe­riod of uncer­tainty is in­dis­putable. Most ob­vi­ously, the sit­u­a­tion has caused the state to ba­si­cally grind to a halt and frozen all move­ment on the in­vest­ment front. The gov­ern­ment may buy a few more months with some tac­ti­cal ma­neu­ver­ing but it is los­ing mo­men­tum and clout. We are in dan­ger of sink­ing into a quag­mire and the only way out is to have a new gov­ern­ment with a clear man­date.
