MPs must think of the greater good
Greece would be in for a great deal of trouble if the coalition government were to collapse in the middle of its mandate, because political stability is the single most important factor in the battle to get the country back on its feet after the painful last few years.
The only way for the Greek economy to recuperate and for the government and the international lenders to reach some kind of compromise in regard to the country’s debt is for Greece to avoid any form of upheaval.
Lawmakers are, of course, in a very difficult position because they are the direct recipients of the people’s anger and dismay at the situation right now. But if they get cold feet and succumb to the pressure now, they will have to bear the consequences in mind.
What they need to be doing is trying to fix what is wrong and not jeopardizing the coalition government.
