The Party of European Socialists congratulates its associate Albanian member party Partia Socialiste on its great result in the elections on Sunday.

PES President Sergei Stanishev said:

"We are very happy that Partia Socialiste (PS) has had such a strong result which will allow it to form a government of progress and put Albania on the path of EU accession." 

"A government led by PS and Edi Rama will help Albania meet the priorities set out by the European Commission on their path towards future EU accession. In that regard, we welcome the fact that future EU accession is a strategic objective supported by both PS and the main opposition party."
