Dealing with sensitive issues

There are a number of sensitive issues of major national interest, matters that absolutely no one has the right to play games with.

Given that the country is gearing up for two different sets of elections next month, this fundamental rule – one which every country with any sense of self-esteem ought to observe – is currently being subject to violent infringement in Greece, for the sake of a few extra votes.

The country’s main opposition party has displayed amateurism in the way it has handled the issue of balance in the northeastern region of Thrace.

Meanwhile, party officials who recklessly and lightheartedly discuss particularly sensitive issues on television panels – shows that are absolutely not appropriate for this type of analysis – are not doing the country any favors either.

Demonstrating a certain level of responsibility and self-constraint would be the right thing to do at this particular point in time.
