IMF: Elena Panaritis Selected to Represent Greece at IMF



One year ago, in The Guardian (1st June, 2014)


"Leaders are asked to take brave decisions – these still haven’t been taken in Europe, and quite frankly I do not think they will be taken soon because Europe has become a big bureaucratic elephant with a life of its own. Large entities like this are not known for their ability to be flexible or adapt to the reality on the ground. I fear things will become worse before they start getting better...In general, the EU has disappointed the Greeks. Instead of making decisions, the EU postponed them. There was a lot of talk, endless meetings in Brussels; kicking the can down the road every time only prolonged the pain. This created anger, discontent and impatience".


From an article by Elena Panaritis, The Guardian, 1 June, 2014

Within SYRIZA, there appears to be some opposition to the appointment. The reasons are not clear; related to involvement in past Memorandum?

Ο κοινοβουλευτικός εκπρόσωπος του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ Ν.Φίλης έκανε την ακόλουθη δήλωση στο Βήμα: «Υπάρχει προβληματισμός στην Κοινοβουλευτική Ομάδα για την επιλογή της κυρίας Παναρίτη που συμματοδοτεί το μνημονιακό παρελθόν. Η απόφαση πρέπει να ληφθεί από τα αρμόδια συλλογικά όργανα.»
