dc.description.abstractThe government led by Konstantinos Karamanlis from March 2004 continued the modernising task of those led by Kostas Simitis, while differing in language and emphasis. Most of its achievements were in the spheres of financial reform and economic management. Here it strengthened investors’ confidence and reduced the budget deficit. It did nothing to improve procedures for appointments to the public administration, or to raise its level of efficiency. Abuses of patronage continued without change. The government built on the improvements in service to citizens begun by its predecessor. Changes in public attitudes give grounds for thinking that firm leadership in reform will win widespread support.en
