The Communist Party of Malta welcomes the left wing victory in France's Senate.
The Communist Party of Malta welcomes the results in the French Senate Elections where for the first time in the 53-year history of the Fifth Republic, the left political forces won by a majority of seats.
“The Communist Party of France obtained good results along with the anti-capitalist party and other left wing factions, which gained at least 26 seats. The Communists alone gained a new seat from the previous elections, and now has a total of 15 seats. The French Socialist party won 141 seats and the Greens obtained 10 seats”.
“This results shows that communist parties in Europe are gaining more support. Communists in Greece, Portugal, Cyprus, Latvia, Germany, Denmark and Czech Republic are all represented in their National Parliaments and also in the European Parliament”.
The Communist Party of Malta augurs for more positive results for the Communists and other progressive forces for an alternative Europe based on environmental sustainability and more social justice.
