Constitutional changes without constitutional revision

Manitakis, Antonis (2015)


The last thing that Greece currently needs is the start of the process for the revision of the Constitution. At a very critical moment for the country’s economy, with the state’s existence being under threat and with the political system collapsing and becoming more and more unreliable, any discussion over constitutional revision is, according to my opinion, untimely, absurd, pointless and misleading. Such a kind of constitutional change will neither respond to any of the immediate and profound problems that have been brought about by the crisis, nor tackle the chronic and structural ills of Greek political life: political and administrative corruption, tax evasion, paralysis of the state and the administration, wrecking of education, party corruption and clientelism.
