No sign of solution to the crisis

After the parliamentary elections in Greece nothing points to a governing coalition led by Nea Dimokratia being able to lead the country out of the crisis, the conservative daily Lidové noviny writes: "The Greeks have irrationally said: Let us keep the euro but don't tell us that we're living beyond our means. … The citizens had the choice between young radicals and the old school that landed the country in its present mess. A coalition under the conservatives' leadership will be weak. Nothing points to them managing the country any better that it has been managed in the past twenty years. The second cause for uncertainty is foreign opinion. Germany must decide whether it wants to keep Greece in the Eurozone. … As long as this remains unclear the Greeks may as well hold new elections every six months."
