Socialist and democratic Commissioners are continuing to fight for a fairer and more sustainable Europe for all, the Party of European Socialists said today as it welcomed the progressive priorities in the European Commission’s new work programme. Delivering on all these policies will be key to guaranteeing a recovery that leaves nobody behind.

PES President Sergei Stanishev said:

“We have a strong team of Commissioners fighting to put our priorities into action. From the European Green Deal to strong social rights, from gender equality to better cohesion, socialists are working to improve the lives of everyone.

“We strongly welcome the inclusion of key PES priorities in the work programme, and I thank Commission Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič for his efforts to make sure they are front and centre. These policies are vital to secure a recovery for all."

The PES strongly supports priorities across the range of Commission portfolios.
