In the beginning of April, PASOK representative Andreas Loverdos announced that his party would not participate in the parliamentary discussion over a bill that Giorgos Katrougkalos (present minister of Administrative Reform) was to submit, “it is a matter of morals” Mr. Loverdos said. A few days before that, PASOK had also walked out from a committee about public administration, again because Mr. Katrougkalos took part in it. This might be a good time to examine how PASOK faired in public administration while it was in government along with ND and DIMAR.

The Real Thing: An Anti-austerity European Government
What is at stake in Greece goes very far beyond merely financial questions. It goes beyond the question of the fate of a small and historically very badly governed country with weak institutions that has suffered abominably in the wake of the crisis over the last five years, losing 25% or so of its output.
