Dont toy with institutions

At some point we need to realize that we should not play around with institutions.

It has not been long since we saw the implementation of the Kallikratis law to overhaul local authorities. For better or worse, the plan was voted in Parliament and has already been implemented. It would be a grave mistake to reopen the matter simply because some people want to make changes to this or that municipality.

Such a development would be very risky under the current political circumstances for it would most likely invite deputies and local leaders to press for changes in their own municipalities.
