Greek Elections – Status Quo


I am here in Parliament Square in Athens for the elections. I have been talking to a lot of people and it is really fascinating. When I ask, “Why are you voting for the same guy when he didn’t do what he was elected for?” the response is shocking, “Yeah — but nobody does what they say they will do.”

Elections seem to be ceremonies rather than something that people really expect to change. Everything was shut down today for the elections. The tourist industry shut down at 3:00 PM for voting.

Greece is an absolutely beautiful country. It is a shame what the politicians have done.
