The political positions and plans to manage the country’s problems may be important for the people who will be called upon to decide the country’s future.
For the party or parties that will undertake the responsibility of governing the country, the management of the political time they have at their disposal to make critical decision is just as important as their political positions. There is no room for the economy, primarily, to enter a cycle of carelessness and delays. We tried to “buy” political time in the recent past and the results were painful.
It is imperative to form a government, which will be aware of the urgency, as soon as possible. The economy, society and of course our European partners need to receive a political sign regarding the new government’s intentions and goals. There is no place for political and party games in today’s reality.
The next day must come… yesterday. The election campaign atmosphere of conflicts, promises, and institutional acrobatics must come to an end, if possible on the night of the elections. The election division must end and give way to an attempt for a minimum national consensus. There is no room for celebrations or reprisals.
The country must be government with a clear plan, both for the many domestic problems, as for the critical and decisive negotiation with our partners for our European future. That must be the priority of those who will be called to manage the people’s future.
