Venezuela : for an end to the violence

17 February 2014

The situation in Venezuela continues to be of serious concern for the international community. That in a democracy violence can reach the levels observed last week in Caracas and in other places of the country with people being killed and injured, opposition leaders being persecuted, with restrictions on freedoms, including the freedom of information, amongst others, point to the gravity of the situation in that country...


Ending the stalemate in Cyprus

17 February 2014

The agreement between the President of the Republic of Cyprus Nicos Anastasiades and the Turkish Cypriot leader Dervis Eroglu on a Joint Statement is opening the way for renewed negotiations and provides a solid basis for a constructive dialogue that can lead to a functional and viable resolution of the Cyprus problem as soon as possible. It also creates the conditions for ending, at last, the unacceptable status quo... 


A new Prime Minister in Nepal

11 February 2014

The Socialist International has congratulated Sushil Koirala, the president of its member party the Nepali Congress (NCP), on his election on 10 February as new Prime Minister of the Federal Democratic Republic of Nepal. Sushil Koirala got the support of 405 of the 553 members of parliament that took part in the vote. The NCP will now have again, after its last time in office in 2006-2008 under the late G. P. Koirala, the opportunity to bring forward its social democratic agenda and to strengthen the institutional framework of Nepal...


For an Olympic Truce in Syria during the Sochi Games


07 FEBRUARY 2014

Ahead of the second round of Geneva II talks, and following the agreement on the removal of the country’s chemical weapons, our priority in Syria must now be to address the ongoing humanitarian crisis. According to available estimates, more than 130,000 people have been killed since March 2011. Millions more have been displaced as refugees. Securing a ceasefire would provide immediate relief for citizens caught in the fighting and enable humanitarian aid to reach those in need…


Climate Change: The eleventh hour

27 NOVEMBER 2013

The Socialist International has been closely following the Warsaw Climate Change Conference, COP19/CMP9, which concluded on 23 November in Poland. Regretfully, once again little progress has been achieved on the most vital issues. There have been some positive developments and the SI welcomes these, but on the most pressing points, in particular that of sealing a new global agreement to replace Kyoto, and on firm and sufficient financial commitments from the developed world, decisions were weak or absent... 


Talks with Iran

25 NOVEMBER 2013

As President of the Socialist International, I welcome the positive outcome of the talks between the P5+1 (United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia and China) and Iran, facilitated by the European Union, concerning Iran's nuclear program. It is a major step towards increased stability in the broader region. This important deal, reached after intensive negotiations in a climate of mutual respect, paves the way towards a long term comprehensive solution. The successful implementation of this first agreement...


Elections in Mauritania – the need for democracy

21 NOVEMBER 2013

The situation in Mauritania, just days before the municipal and legislative elections that are due to take place on Saturday 23 November 2013, continues to be a source of great concern for the Socialist International. The country is suffering from a profound institutional crisis as a result of a great democratic deficit. Mauritania has been deprived of a legal parliament for two years since elections that were initially due in November 2011 were twice postponed, and the November 2013 elections have been convened without due respect for the established procedures...


Socialist International closely follows investigation into attack against Governor of Santa Fe, Argentina

26 October 2013

The Socialist International has been closely following the investigation underway in Santa Fe, Argentina, looking forward to a speedy clarification of the facts surrounding the criminal attack a few weeks ago against its Governor, Antonio Bonfatti, which took place at his home in the district of Alberdi in Rosario. Bonfatti is a member of the Socialist Party of Argentina, a member party of this organisation. The violence against the Governor, whose home was the target of 14 bullets, has been condemned and firmly repudiated by leaders and representatives of member parties of the International...


The challenges of democracy: Guinea’s parliamentary elections

11 October 2013

On 28 September 2013 Guinea held for the first time elections for a new parliament in democracy. Having endured more than 50 years of autocratic rulers since achieving independence in 1958, the country swore in its first democratically elected President, Alpha Condé, in December 2010. There was, unsurprisingly, a high level of expectation from such a significant electoral process. These elections were originally foreseen to take place six months after the new democratic government took office. However, this timeframe proved to be too short to secure the necessary agreements, including all the political forces, for the carrying out of these elections, which were eventually reached earlier this year...


The responsibility of the international community towards the Syrian people

04 SeptembER 2013

In March 2011 the world began to witness anti-government protestors in Syria taking to the streets calling for an end to President Bashir al-Assad’s regime and for an opening of the way for a democratic system and the enjoyment of rights and freedoms for all the Syrian people. From the outset, the Socialist International, consistent with its principles and values and its commitment to all those in the world struggling for democracy and fundamental rights, has openly supported these demands. Throughout the period since the protests began, the Syrian regime has ignored these calls from its people, as well as calls from members of the international community... 


The urgent need to restore Egypt’s democratic agenda

31 JULY 2013

During recent weeks the world has been witnessing a dramatic departure from the democratic agenda in Egypt. Following the removal of the Morsi government by the military, the political situation has continued to deteriorate rapidly, further diminishing the prospects for national reconciliation and democracy. The violent crackdown and extreme use of force by the army and police against demonstrators, which has resulted in scores of deaths and many more injured, is deplorable and is unequivocally condemned by the Socialist International...


Decision of European Parliament on FTT

04 JULY 2013

The adoption, by the European Parliament, with a large majority, of the report of MEP and Vice-President of the EP, Anni Podimata, for the implementation of a financial transactions tax (FTT) by 11 EU member states within the framework of enhanced cooperation, is an additional significant step in the right direction. Through this decision, the persistent and concerted efforts made by the Socialist International and many democratic and progressive forces in Europe and around the world, are also rewarded...


In support of democracy and national unity in Egypt

04 JULY 2013

One year on from sweeping to power with 13 million votes, President Mohamed Morsi and his Moslim Brotherhood dominated government have been forcefully removed from office by the Egyptian military. President Morsi, the first freely-elected President of Egypt, was at his lowest in terms of popularity, having failed to deliver on the democratic promises he was elected to fulfil. Last December he granted himself un-challengeable powers, which shocked both the Egyptian people and the international community...


Evo Morales, international norms, and equality among states

JULY 2013

The withdrawal of permission, after it had been granted, for the presidential plane carrying Bolivian leader Evo Morales to cross airspace, by several European countries, while he transited home from Moscow, represented a grave infringement of the immunities and rights recognised for Heads of States, and endangered the lives of all those on board the aircraft. These developments demonstrate, on the one hand, the fragility of recognised and long-established international norms, and on the other hand, the vulnerability of international actors, such as leaders of sovereign states, vis-à-vis other powers in the international political system...


Celebration of election results in Albania

25 JUNE 2013

The Socialist International joins the people of Albania celebrating in the streets today, welcoming the results of the elections that took place last Sunday, which point to a resounding victory for the coalition of the Left led by Edi Rama of the SI member Albanian Socialist Party, and a Vice-President of the International.
The strong showing of the Left coalition, Renaissance, is a signal of the desire for change in Albania, a desire to turn the page on the previous regime...

Repression of opposition protest in Equatorial Guinea is condemned by the SI

25 JUNE 2013

A peaceful demonstration planned for today by the opposition Convergence for Social Democracy, CPDS, the SI member party in Equatorial Guinea, has been forcefully repressed, and last night six members of the leadership of the party were detained for several hours by government security forces. The Socialist International wholeheartedly condemns these acts and calls on the Obiang regime to end the harassment of opposition forces and to respect the fundamental rights of the people of Equatorial Guinea…


Statement of the Socialist International on the situation in Turkey

17 JUNE 2013

Developments in Turkey during the last three weeks have been followed with increasing concern by the international community. The Turkish government, which should respond to the grievances of the citizens who are protesting and act in accordance with the norms and principles of a democracy, is failing to listen and to seek a way forward to avoid the current spiral of violence, of beatings, and the victims that the world continues to witness as a consequence...


The SI is deeply concerned over recent legislation in Moldova

07 May 2013

Indeed, the International has been following political life in Moldova closely over recent years with a keen interest in seeing Moldova joining Europe, developing a new legitimate institutional framework, and consolidating past gains borne from the will of the Moldovan citizens for a fair and democratic society...

Tax evasion & tax havens

Renewed call for global crackdown

15 April 2013

The Socialist International (SI) has repeatedly called for international regulation to prevent tax evasion, which is robbing our economies of trillions of dollars every year.

In 2008, the SI created a Commission on the Global Financial Crisis, which highlighted the lack of effective international regulation and implementation mechanisms to stem tax avoidance and tax evasion...
