A divided opposition

SYRIZA is a deeply divided party and the discord within its ranks ranges from minor issues that are of little importance to the rest of us to major questions that could affect the entire nation, such as what kind of currency Greece should have.

In fact, every time the leader of the main opposition party attempts to show that he is ready to shift ever so slightly toward a more realistic approach on any matter, the opposition he faces within his own party gets stirred up and starts negating his words.

The result is that beyond all the other dividing lines that fragment it, SYRIZA is also split between those who champion the euro and those who want Greece out of the eurozone and to adopt a new national currency.

One can only wonder how such a diverse and divided party can possibly hope to govern the country when it is so obvious that its lawmakers and officials cannot even agree on the most fundamental things.
