21 February 2008 PES President Poul Nyrup Rasmussen said “The Party of European Socialists welcomes the decision of the Social Democratic Party EDEK, our member party in Cyprus, to support the candidature of Demetris Christofias in the Presidential election on 24 February.”

“The Party of European Socialists stands by the Cypriot People in its struggle to end the illegal occupation of part of the Republic of Cyprus. The PES reiterates its active support for a comprehensive settlement of the political problem within the framework of the United Nations that will be based on the relevant UN Resolutions and upon the principles the EU is founded.”

“The Party of European Socialists stresses the importance of the election of another progressive government in Europe. Cyprus needs to continue on the road of social values, with a government that promotes social cohesion and solidarity. In our efforts to build a Social Europe we need a Social Cyprus.”
