Precarious state

Greece’s fate has been left to the mercy of random acts and occurrences, with the political crisis that has broken out in the coalition government over a comment made by Alternate Migration Minister Yiannis Mouzalas showing us that all manner of control has been lost.

The absence of a plan, some kind of structure and organization, was already apparent from the government’s inability to manage the refugee crisis, which is only getting worse.

Extreme caution is needed in the weeks and months to come so that Greece does not slip into an extended period of uncertainty that would destroy the economy and exacerbate problems and tensions on a number of open fronts.

Greece needs an adequate and serious government, political stability and national consensus on the basic targets. Right now it has none of those three and that is extremely dangerous indeed.
