Still time for consensus

National consensus is lacking more than ever before. The country is at a crucial crossroads and political leaders are not even talking to each other.

Our partners, foreign investors and rating agencies, among others, consider that this lack of basic consensus and understanding is a fundamental Greek problem which increases political risk and uncertainty.

The government is doing its best to undermine such a prospect, while the opposition is stuck in dead-end rhetoric. No country could appear credible given such a climate. On the contrary, it comes across as unreliable.

No leader or party are capable of pulling through on their own in this kind of unprecedented crisis.

We failed to communicate, give or take a few exceptions, in the last five years and that is why, contrary to other countries, we sank.

It’s time we realize how self-destructive this lack of understanding truly is and do something about it, even at such a late stage.
