ATHENS – With his party opening a lead in polls, major opposition Coalition of the Radical Left (SYRIZA) leader Alexis Tsipras said its anti-austerity stance is being picked up across Europe.

He said SYRIZA is the only party that can get better terms from Greece’s international lenders, the Troika of the European Union-International Monetary Fund-European Central Bank (EU-IMF-ECB) that is putting up 240 billion euros ($317 billion) in two bailouts.

Prime Minister and New Democracy Conservative leader and his partner the PASOK Socialists have been implementing big pay cuts, tax hikes, slashed pensions and worker firings on Troika orders, but those have created record unemployment, deep poverty, and widespread anger.

“The Troika’s [economic] model is dying under the weight of the Greek failure,” Tsipras wrote in an article published in Efimerida ton Syntakton.

He added that an increasing number of politicians in Europe were questioning the austerity being championed by Germany and lashed out at Samaras, saying the Premier had failed to capitalize on changing attitudes in Europe against austerity plans as an economic panacea.
