A time to work, not to relax

The slack-off syndrome is back with a vengeance.

Greek politicians believe that now the country?s problems are ?solved,? they can turn their attention and efforts to their re-election. But this is hardly the case, of course.

Greece has undertaken a number of particularly serious commitments, most of which have to do with carrying out major reforms of the kind which should have been implemented decades ago.

Athens will once again come under the scrutiny of its partners and creditors in June and will find itself in a terribly uncomfortable position if the basic targets, which the country?s leadership has agreed upon, have not materialized.

This is why it is truly dangerous to postpone the implementation of decisions until after the elections and for the ?It?s alright to unwind a little, it?s election time soon? mantra to prevail.

Every day spent by government officials on petty political matters is a day lost, a day for which the country will have to pay a hefty price in a few months.
