President of the S&D Group Gianni Pittella and president of the PES Sergei Stanishev call the Moldovan authorities and all political forces to demonstrate their responsibility towards the country by lowering tensions and guaranteeing stability. That would be the first precondition to successfully face the challenges the country is facing and respect the expectations of the citizens for functioning and fair institutions. Moldova can progress and continue along the European path by striking up the needed reforms.
PES President Sergei Stanishev said: 'As PES President, I congratulate Jeremy Corbyn on his election as leader of the Labour Party. His campaign for leader has inspired tens of thousands of people to engage in the socialist movement, to fight, and campaign for a fairer society. Many of them are young people who have never participated in such an election before. This is a fantastic achievement.'
