Time for consensus

The possibility of a review of the Greek constitution is a major opportunity for the country. Following the events of the last few years this appears to be a chance that should not go to waste.

The countrys constitution comprises a number of provisions that could be revised based on a broad, across-the-spectrum, Parliamentary majority.

Among these are matters such as the financing of Greek political parties, ministerial responsibility and the lifting of deputies immunity from prosecution.

These are the kind of issues that public opinion is concerned about and interested in, matters that demand the urgent attention of the countrys leaders.

Prime Minister Antonis Samaras appears to be ready to raise the issues and put forward a number of bold suggestions and changes.

What the Greek people would no doubt find highly gratifying at this point would be for this initiative to meet with genuine consensus on behalf of the countrys serious political powers.
