PM attends European Socialists Party congress

Prime Minister Joseph Muscat is attending the European Socialists Party congress during which decisions are being taken on the strategy that the Party will adopt in next May’s European Parliament elections.

The European Socialists Party’s plan is to make the European Union closer to the citizens and communities. Its political programme also stresses on an economy within an environmental framework and more opportunities for youths in EU countries.

Documents, which were approved by some 1,000 delegates including various Prime Ministers, were coordinated by Maros Sefcovic in a four-hour session with the participation of representatives of various PES branches. Eight approved resolutions will serve as a basis for the electoral manifesto of the European Socialists Party in next year’s elections.

These refer, among others, to the strengthening of democracy, the economy, migration, equality, environment and sustainability and the strengthening of the social policy.

PES President, Sergie Stanishev who was confirmed in the post, stated that today the change is more felt in the European Union’s direction, adding that the European Commission should safeguard, among others, democracy and rule of law and ensure sustainable growth so that European youths have a good future.
