Communists welcome the success obtained by the Left in Greece.
The Communist Party of Malta welcomes the success obtained by the left in the General elections held last Sunday in Greece. The total percentage of votes cast in favour of Syriza and KKE (Communist Party of Greece) was 41.8%
"This result brings hope to the left, radical, and Communist Parties in Europe, and restores back the people’s confidence in these parties. There is great hope that the example of Greece will also be followed in Spain, Cyprus, and in other EU countries
The Communist Party of Malta condemns the draconian austerity measures that the European Union had imposed on the people of Greece, as these measures, brought only misery, insecurity and high unemployment'.
The Communist Party of Malta has sent congratulatory messages to Syriza for its’ great victory, and to the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) which succeeded in maintaining its presence in Parliament contrary to what was predicted by the right wing.
