When a government has suffered in an election and heated discussions of cabinet changes become commonplace, it is unavoidable that the state mechanism will slow down. This would not be that much of a problem if the country was not at a crossroad. Any delays at present could be fatal and does not contribute towards the recovery of the economy and the country.
Greece cannot afford the luxury of an extended period of the government being indecisive. Firstly because the problems cannot wait and secondly because there are deadlines to meet. Any changes to the government and its policies cannot cause any further delays.
The deadlines are tight, while the needs of the economy and society are enormous. The Prime Minister and the Government Vice President who are in charge of the government have an obligation to agree on the corrective moves that they deem necessary in order to respond to the message the people sent through the ballot box.
The government’s and country’s stability demand outstanding issues being dealt with as soon as possible. It is the only way to confirm recent predictions that we are finally escaping the vicious cycle of recession and that we can start to hope that we will become a normal country again that will not rely on the troika’s reviews in the future.
