Overdue reshuffle

Greece is facing crisis on two extremely difficult fronts – the economy and the migration situation – and the government simply cannot rise to the challenge.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras needs to take action.

It is clear that there is not enough cooperation and no groundwork has been done to deal with the burgeoning refugee crisis over a year since it first started making its appearance.

On the front of the bailout review by foreign creditors that remains pending, it is obvious that certain ministers are simply not doing their jobs or cannot complete even the most rudimentary tasks.

The biggest damage to Greece, however, has been done by a specific category of government officials. These are the politician who have openly declared war on the one target that Tsipras had set his sights on: wrapping up the review.

The prime minister should have already held a cabinet reshuffle some time ago if we are to believe that he sees the enormous chasm separating the needs of the country and his government.
