Madrid 2008

In 2008 the PES Council took place in Madrid, on 1-2 December, and it focused on adopting the PES manifesto for the 2009 European elections. After a consultation launched by the PES in 2007 and a drafting period, PES member parties adopted the final manifesto at the Council. The PES Council marked as well the launch of the elections campaign at European level.

Following the success of the PES Council in 2007 and PES Congress in 2006, where PES activists were a lively presence that marked a new way of integrating grassroots into European politics, activists were present in this important socialist gathering.
