Achim Post welcomes PD
After the presidency meeting earlier today PES Secretary General Achim Post welcomed the Italian PD in the leadership team.
Giacomo Filibeck will join the team as Deputy Secretary General. 'We have known Giacomo since the time when he was leading the Young European Socialists (YES). During the past years he has played a crucial role in keeping up the relations between the PD in Italy and the socialist family. I am sure he fits very well in our PES team. His main task during the coming months is to liaise with the upcoming Italian EU presidency'.
Following the European elections, the PES will - together with its member parties - develop and launch a new set of priorities and projects in order to win the next European elections in 2019. The forthcoming PES presidency meeting in October will therefore adopt a new organigram of the party, with renewed tasks and responsibilities for the secretariat.
