Socialist International

The Socialist International, the worldwide organization of social democratic, socialist and labour parties, will elect its President at the upcoming meeting of its Council to be held in Athens on 30-31 January 2006. The election of the President will complete a process that began last June when the Presidium of the Socialist International appointed a Commission with the responsibility to receive and consider candidatures for the office. The Commission, which included leaders of SI member parties from each region of the world and was chaired by SI Vice-President José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, reported back with the name of George Papandreou, the leader of the SI member party in Greece, the Panhellenic Socialist Movement, PASOK, as candidate for President of Socialist International, which will be voted upon by all the member parties of the organization in Athens. The two-day Council meeting in Athens, to be hosted by PASOK, will be attended by leaders and representatives from member parties of the Socialist International from all continents to address current key issues on the international agenda.
