The Party of European Socialists would like to congratulate Olivier Faure on his election as Premier Secrétaire of our French party, Parti Socialiste.

PES president Sergei Stanishev said:

“We are very happy about the renewed commitment of PS to an agenda of transformation, justice and equality. These are the fundamentals of our political family and I’m certain they are the key to success. We will support you in this process of profound renewal”.

“Currently the political debate in France is dominated by either the anger of the extreme right or the policies of the ‘extreme centre’. The president of the Republic is focused on the wealthiest rather than the average citizen.We thank Olivier Faure and the Parti Socialiste for their proposals for France and for Europe. Together we can ensure that Europe takes the social turn it needs”.
