7. Euronews: Tsipras starts EU tour ahead of Greek elections

Riding a wave of anti-austerity sentiment, radical-left Greek politician Alexis Tsipras has begun a tour of European capitals.

First stop: Paris where he took part in a leftist rally before meeting French radical-left leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon. In a press conference he issued a stark warning to newly elected French President François Hollande to stick to anti-austerity electoral promises:

“Thanks to the existence of this strong leftist force François Holland knows that he cannot renege on his promises so easily. Because if he does so, he’ll become Hollandreou and start down the path that led to what we see happening now in Greece.”

With his star on the rise ahead of the June elections, Tspiras has become the main protagonist in the eurozone drama, due to his rejection of the EU-IMF bailout.

France is a good place for Tsipras to start his foreign tour given the recent success of the left and its anti-austerity message there.
