Long-standing problems

One of the worst and oldest structural problems of the Greek state has to do with overlapping responsibilities in the civil service. 

Local authorities and government officials hide behind them to avoid doing their job. The result is that everyone, but also no one, is responsible. 

We pay for this every time a large fire breaks out, but also in many other instances. No government has tried to untangle the mess. But whoever dares will leave a significant legacy.
