It is in the People's Hands
There are also positive elements to the situation in today's Greece. It is only that these are lost in the tornado of hopelessness. The best example of this is the democratic governance of the country. And so, Greek citizens have the opportunity to decide themselves about the fate of their country. It is up to them to elect the right leadership; the politicians who will responsibly handle the problems. The ones who will lay the foundations for a better future. I've said it many times: the solution to the problem lies within, not outside of the country. Let the Greek voters make their choices with their eye to the future, not the past. Let them vote not to punish, but to elect an able leadership. The final results of the (secret) polls conducted provide a more positive election result than they did a few days ago. They show New Democracy gaining 27-30% of the vote, PASOK gaining 18-20%. They also show Dora Bakoyannis' party Democratic Alliance entering Parliament. If these results hold true, then there is hope for the country: a government will be formed with Antonis Samaras as premier, who will have the support of a wide base of electors. This is the best solution under these circumstances. And another thing: Dora Bakoyannis' presence in Parliament is a necessity. She has been the most prudent and realistic voice in Parliament since the crisis broke out. She is more than just the only politician who dares to call a spade a spade, which the country is in such dire need of. She is one of the few figures who enjoys international acceptance and respect. It is also important that a large majority of the people are in support of the euro. The duration that this majority will hold will depend on the quality of the political leadership. And that will depend on the people's vote. The matter is in their hands.
