A few days af­ter the In­ter­na­tional Mone­tary Fund ad­mit­ted to ma­jor mis­steps over in its han­dling of Greece’s first bailout, left­ist SYRIZA leader Alexis Tsipras at­tacked con­ser­va­tive Prime Min­is­ter An­to­nis Sa­ma­ras for pur­su­ing aus­ter­ity poli­cies im­posed by in­ter­na­tional cred­i­tors. “Al­though [Greece’s] lenders ad­mit the pro­gram’s flaws, the pre­mier’s in­sis­tence on im­ple­ment­ing the cat­a­strophic me­moran­dum shows that he is out of touch with re­al­ity,” the anti-bailout party said in a state­ment Satur­day. It added that re­cent de­vel­op­ments are a “vin­di­ca­tion for SYRIZA.” “Sa­ma­ras’s talk of ‘suc­cess story’ has be­come the briefest joke,” the party said.
