The Party of European Socialists would like to express its concern about the thousands of suspensions in the military, in the police, in the justice system following the attempted coup in Turkey. The PES is worried the most about the debate on the re-introduction of the death penalty, initiated by the Turkish Government.
With its progressive reforms, the PES promotes a real alternative to the politics of cuts and lowest social standards.
Gathering measures ranging from decent wages, quality public services, fair taxation, investment in education and clean technology, the PES programme for progressive reforms shapes a new social and economic model that supports growth and jobs, favours environmental, economic and social sustainability and reduces inequalities.
With the Youth Guarantee, we have shown that another kind of reforms is possible, we are now ready to push for more.
