Editorial: A bit more seriousness… | tovima.gr

Amidst a state of political uncertainty, due to the Presidential election, it is absurd – and dangerous – for politician to make the climate worse with discursive comments. While the international press is littered by reports and analyses about the dangers of an election, we re sawing off the branch we are sitting on for small political gains.

There always were and there always will be differing opinions on managing the crisis. There are however some self-evident facts that we cannot ignore or depreciate. Whether we like it or not, the markets are a reality which we cannot disregard by talking about how they dance to our tune. Nor can we adopt without hesitation a fear mongering logic that argue that going to elections will result in a credit event, namely bankruptcy…

Enough with the war of comments for domestic consumption and galvanizing party support. We have paid dearly for the populist obsessions of our political system. Finally, they must assume their responsibilities and be a bit more serious and think twice before they spout statements that make them and the country less earnest and credible.

Last night’s warning by the Governor of the Bank of Greece Mr. Stournaras was obviously a result of this climate and everyone ought to take it into consideration; “I have a duty to point out”, he stressed “that the crisis of recent days is becoming serious, liquidity in the market is being reduced at a great rate and the danger of breaking the growth trajectory that just began and of an irrevocable harm to the Greek economy is great”.

These are days of responsibility for everyone. The desirable political pursuits and expectations cannot ignore the country’s situation and the market reaction, nor can they generate a climate of concern in society.
