Ever since the communists lost the civil war way back in the late 1940’s, a significant % of the Greek population has been pushing for a radical left government.
Well those people got their wish when in last January SYRIZA the radical left party with Alexis Tsipras at the lead won the election and Tsipras became Prime Minister. He formed a government and the last seven months he showed the world once again that those radical left demagogic ideologies belong in history’s files of negative and distractive experiments. As a consequence, Mr. Tsipras resigned last week and called for new elections, the third election in the last 8 months!!!!!
He has demonstrated that he is strictly a politician caring only for his political interests and not of the Greek people and the Country.
Even though he is young it seems that he is cut from the same cloth as those that have governed poorly for the last several decades!
Unfortunately he has turned out not to be different.
Greece is not functioning today as a State!!! Mr. Tsipras has abdicated his responsibilities and showed complete incompetence in negotiations with the Europeans for the national debt obligations. He has devoted his energies and abilities to his self-centered arrogant decision making!!!!
Only God can help Greece if Mr. Tsipras gets back to govern Greece.
I hope I am wrong!!!!!
I consider Mr. Meimerakis as a person with inteligence, commanding respect inside and outside of Greece, he communicates well, he seems to be open minded, serious but posses meaningful humor.
A Note: I have never belonged to a party in Greece or in the USA where I live for the last 60+ years. I support persons with integrity and needed programs that I believe they will implement regardless of the party they belong. In Michigan I have supported a Moderate Republican, a Moderate Democrat and a Conservative Republican governor. My support was based on their announced programs. If / when they deviated from those programs I withdrew my support.
