Forward-looking reshuffle

The citizens sent two separate messages from the ballot box last month. First of all, they expressed their anger at overtaxation and the impact of the crisis on their lives, while also expressing frustration at the two traditionally dominant parties for being incapable of changing the way they operate.

A change in policy aimed at appeasing the public by increasing handouts or sacrificing ministers who challenged vested interests and powerful unions is not the solution. The citizens are keeping a close eye on the reshuffle and will scrutinize the government’s behavior afterward before they determine whether the “old” political system has what it takes to rid itself of the bad habits of the past.

The critical mass does not trust the opposition and wants stability, but it also expects some rejuvenation. The prime minister has a rare opportunity to make decisions that will not disappoint voters who are moderate and function on the basis of common sense.
