Commenting on the results of the national elections in Greece, Party of European Socialists (PES) President Sergei Stanishev stated: “This is a democratic result that needs to be respected. The Greek people have suffered a lot from the crisis and their vote constitutes an explicit protest against the Troika and the austerity measures imposed by conservative Europe. Their vote is a message that needs to be listened to: this austerity obsessed Europe must come to an end. This is the change that the PES, with PASOK and all our parties have been fighting for since the beginning of the crisis, and for which we are starting to see real results with active policies across Europe that are investing more and more in social issues and fair growth”.
