The stalemate with the troika has to do with trust. Troika head representatives have been called many things in this country, but being inconsistent is not one of them. Since the beginning of negotiations in 2010, troika people have been steadily arguing for two parallel courses of action: cutting expenses and forwarding structural changes (to liberalise the market, invite competition and boost growth).
For people to gain from political competition, common sense dictates that new ‘Tsiprases’ should appear to reposition Greek politics -hopefully closer to Europe- and move the country forward. But the process is going to be bloody.
