Greek Enterpreneurs Want Leftist Party SYRIZA in New Government

Industrialists are asking the participation of a Leftist party in the government, -specifically SYRIZA – who is widely considered to be the big winner of the elections as it succeeded in surpassing PASOK’s percentages.
This statement was made by the president of the Federation of Greek Enterprises (SEV) Dimitris Daskalopoulos, who spoke of an anti-memorandum vote of the people who condemned the “managerial, moral and ideological criminality that they demonstrated against the crisis.”
He described it as desirable “to form a genuine government of national unity and popular legitimacy, which would also include the great winner of the election – SYRIZA- with a clear anti-memorandum position,” expressing his fear that the only alternative might be a return to polls.
“In the old scene, yesterday’s popular vote is a vote of rage, an anti-memorandum vote, a vote of punishment. The popular verdict was bold and conscious. The people rejected the leaders of the vicious partisan past, condemning it. Elections revealed a fertile impasse, through a fragmented landscape. It would be desirable, in the context of exploratory mandates, to form a genuine government of national unity and popular legitimacy, which also includes the great winner of the elections, SYRIZA – with a clear anti-memorandum position. Thus, a chance would be given to form a national negotiating front which would claim from a changing Europe, new terms of treating Greece, according to a national development exit plan from the crisis,” SEV President stated.
“However, there is the broader horizon of our national future that does not give room for illusions. These elections were not only a census to the decomposition of the political forces of the after-junta regime, but a new election,” he added, but he also appeared skeptical and uncertain about the progress of events. He noted that a great deal of change is required for the “reshaping” of socio-economics in Greece. “Only then can there be a viable government and a viable national future within the new Europe,” he underlined.
Debate and concern about yesterday’s election results reflect the Federation of Northern Industries (SBEE) managements, underlining that in case of non-government the future path of the country will be negatively impacted. They call for the cooperation of parliamentary parties, political maturity and calmness, in order to avoid negative scenarios.
Similar reaction was recorded by the industrial chamber of Thessaloniki. “Yesterday’s complete collapse of the big parties and the entry of extreme voices do not leave much room for optimism. Instead, I worry that the possibility of a new round of elections is open, which would sink the country into adventures yet again. The country should be ruled by a government of national salvation,” noted SBEE president Panagiotis Papadopoulos.
