Karizmatični Cipras je izjemno hitro sestavil vlado. Koalicija z desno konservativno stranko Neodvisni Grki je bila za mnoge precej nepričakovana poteza. Lahko torej v primeru morebitne zmage ZL na parlamentarnih volitvah računamo, da boste v koalicijo povabili NSi?
Med Neodvisnimi Grki in NSi obstaja temeljna razlika. NSi je v političnem in ekonomskem smislu povsem razredna stranka, stranka kapitala. Njen program je v bistvu program Gospodarske zbornice. Neodvisni Grki (ANEL) pa so na drugi strani progresivno nacionalistična stranka. 80 odstotkov njihovega programa se prekriva s Sirizinim programom.
To Sirizino odločitev ocenjujem kot zelo dobro. Največjo nevarnost za Sirizo namreč vidim v tem, da bi drsela proti sredini in razvodenela. Z vključitvijo ANEL-a v koalicijo pa so napovedali ravno obratno: da bodo trdno stali za svojimi stališči do oligarhije in trojke, boj proti varčevanju pa je začel dobivati dimenzije narodnoosvobodilnega boja.
Koalicija z ANEL je skratka za Meseca zelo dobra odločitev, NSi je stranka kapitala in razredna stranka, kar Neodvisni Grki nikakor niso. No, nekateri marksisti po svetu mislijo prav nasprotno: gre za katastrofalno slabo odločitev, Neodvisni Grki so buržoazna stranka, ki se bori proti interesom delavstva in je jasen agent kapitala. Vsaj tako beremo na strani www.marxist.com organizacije International Marxist Tendency.
Following decades of persecution, and political marginalisation, the Greek communist movement would be able to govern with 42% support from the electorate and with a comfortable majority of 164 seats in the Greek parliament! But unfortunately, the leaders of the Left with the leadership of the Communist Party (KKE) being primarily responsible, and with the relative willingness of the leadership of SYRIZA to form alliances with bourgeois parties, they have thrown this historic opportunity for a self-standing Left government out of the window, and thus, objectively and irrespective of their intentions, they are betraying the clear mandate they received from the Greek people for deep political and social change.
The looming collaboration of SYRIZA with the Independent Greeks is a serious political mistake and will prove in practice to be tragically disastrous for the working class. The Independent Greeks are a bourgeois party. They have a deeply reactionary, anti-labour political programme on all key matters, such as the economy, government, education, foreign policy, etc. The ‘anti-memorandum’ rhetoric is a demagogic veil covering its reactionary programme. How ‘anti-memorandum’ this bourgeois party is was reveiled during its voting behaviour in parliament regarding memoranda legislation and when the system came to a standstill during the recent presidential election. The parliamentary group of Independent Greeks, brimming with bourgeois career politicians, leaned decisively towards the government camp.
The impact of a coalition with the Independent Greeks will be politically painful, given their insistance on “red lines” with regard to any programmatic position of SYRIZA directed against the fundamental interests of the Greek ruling class. The Independent Greeks will serve as the open agent of capital in a government whose main component is SYRIZA. On the very first application of real pressure by the ‘troika’ (ECB, EU Commission, and the IMF) and by the Greek capitalists, the new government will be forced to retreat from whatever radical measures it may wish to implement, and the bourgeois gang of Independent Greeks will withdraw support for the coalition and try to institute some kind of ‘national unity’ government (with the bourgeois parties). This has in factg been the consistent call of the leader of the Independent Greeks, Panos Kammenos, during the pre-election campaign period.
