Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) parliementary president Alexis Tsipras, replying to a question during a press cocnference on International Monetary Fund managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn who advised that "we should not be resentful with the doctor if he gives medicines swhen that we do not like", said that "in some cases the medicine is worse than the illness."

Tsipras added that "in any case, the IMF managing director is not behaving like a doctor, but like a 'undertaker' of the rights of the working people" and stressed that it will be the first time that the Party of the European Left in France will not support the candidate of the socialists in the second round of the presidential elections, if the candidate is Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

At the press conference on the occasion of the 3rd conference of the Party of the European Left, that was held in Paris (December 3-5), and at which he was elected vice president,Tsipras spoke of the "Agenda for a Social Europe", that was approved with an overwhelming majority and constitutes "the political plan for coordinated action all over the continent, the product of the deep convergence of many forces of the left in Europe."
