Sofia 2007

Council in Sofia, 22-23 November 2007

PES Council is a major gathering of European socialist and social-democrats. It brought together more than 150 delegates from the PES member parties and numerous guests and PES activists. The Council took place on 22-23 November 2007 at the National Palace of Culture in Sofia, Bulgaria.

The Council was the floor to debate a new consultation process about PES manifesto for 2009 European elections. During the Council, plenary sessions were also dedicated to international matters, without forgetting some of the most pressing issues in the political agenda: the regulation of hedge funds and tackling climate change.

Following the success of the PES Congress in Porto 2006, where PES activists were a lively presence that marked a new way of integrating grassroots into European politics, we welcomed once again activists to this important socialist gathering.
