A week before the most crucial elections in the post-Junta era, we must weigh the dangers and ponder what the day after will look like before making our final choices. This is no easy task because of the prevalence of anger and populism.
Greece must stand on its feet, inside the eurozone, however. It must be aboard the European rescue vessel as the debt crisis storm escalates throughout the continent.
Our vote, therefore, has to go to bigger or smaller parties clearly in favor of the euro, reforms, privatizations and the country?s modernization. We should vote for those candidates who dared to assume responsibility for supporting a raft of vital reforms and decisions that kept Greece in the eurozone.
There is a leadership vacuum, an absence of powerful personalities to go against the anti-populist front. But we need to stand by those currently shouldering the responsibility.
