PES welcomes Christine Muttonen as new President of the Parliamentary Assembly of OSCE



The Party of European Socialists welcomes the election of Christine Muttonen as the President of the Parliamentary Assembly of the OSCE. Muttonen, a member of Austrian SPÖ and of our political family was previously a Vice-President of that Assembly. Since this year, she is also Special Representative for Central and Eastern Asia.

PES President Sergei Stanishev said on the occasion: "I warmly congratulate Christine Muttonen for her new position and her work at the OSCE – the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe. It is very good news to have someone from our political family working for an organisation with a capital role in promoting peace and stability, in our immediate vicinity. The OSCE is responsible for monitoring the Minsk agreement and has been a key mediator between Ukraine and Russia.”

The PES would like to wish a good, productive tenure to the new President and hopes that Ms. Muttonen will continue to support the work of our political family.
