A pointless debate

Monday’s parliamentary debate between the country’s political leaders left a lot to be desired.

There was no information whatsoever about the coalition government’s proposed reforms or the progress of ongoing negotiations with the country’s foreign lenders.

Political leaders exchanged slogans and accusations – but there was nothing in the form of concrete proposals. The only pattern that emerged was that of an unconventional alliance of unmatching political forces all in the name of the anti-bailout hysteria.

It is infuriating that this is happening as the country finds itself on the verge of disaster and as the Greek people are anxious about the immediate future. Yesterday’s debate was meaningless and counterproductive, and it should have never taken place. The Greek public had been expecting to find out some information and some signs of consensus.
