German FinMin Schaeuble tells Greece it must stick to reforms path

Early elections on 25. January 2015? Greece’s EU partners are in alert and rush one after the other to bless Greek voters and the next government with advice as public opinion polls suggest that main opposition party, left-wing SYRIZA will emerge as the strongest party in the January elections.

After EU Financial Affairs Commissioner, Pierre Moscovici‘ statement, German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble warned Greece to stick with the bailout so-called “reforms”

Schaeuble warned Greece against straying from a path of economic reform, saying any new government in Athens would be held to the pledges made by the current government of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras.

“The tough reforms are bearing fruit and there is no alternative to them,” Schaeuble said after Greek lawmakers triggered an early election by failing to a elect a new president in a decisive third round of voting in parliament.

“We will continue to help Greece help itself on its path of reform. If Greece takes another path, it will be difficult,” Schaeuble added. “New elections will not change the agreements we have struck with the Greek government. Any new government will have to stick to the agreements made by its predecessor.” (REUTERS via

As we will still have to read a lot of warnings until the elections,  all I can say is: “Neeeeext!”

  1. Jawohl! New governments will just be followink orders! ORDERS VHICH MUST BE OBEYED!

  2. Much as I disagree with the policies of SYRIZA I think they have tapped into the views of the mass of ordinary Europeans who know that whilst the economy is very important, people are much more important. If a SYRIZA-led government can force the blinkered European politicians to consider people and not just the economy then Greece will have once again done civilisation a great service.
