Who would take the helm?

The situation is extremely critical. As debt-hit Greece heads toward another parliamentary election on June 17, voters deserve to know the precise plans of the political parties who are vying for power.

People deserve to know, for example, who the parties intend to propose for prime minister, who they would place in charge of economic policy making, and who would be selected to represent the country in crucial negotiations with our international creditors.

It goes without saying that given the situation we find ourselves in, any untested, inexperienced person would be a nonstarter. Whoever is appointed to helm the country following the national election — the most crucial in recent decades — must be completely prepared on an operational level, but also in terms of staff.

All parties must put their cards on the table so that voters can head to the ballot with as much information about their programs as possible. It is a question of political honesty.
