In a memorandum sent on 7 June 2019, the Eritrean People’s Democratic Party (EPDP) congratulated the Danish Social Democratic Party (DSDP) for its victory in the national elections held during the week.
Addressed to the 42-year old DSDP Chairwoman, Ms Mette Frederikson, the message expressed EPDP’s trust that the Government she will form soon would give “a new direction” to Danish politics by applying her campaign promises for social welfare, better education, environment and brighter future for Danish children.
The EPDP message hoped that the upcoming DSDP Government will understand the still unchanged bad political and human rights situation in Eritrea and give Eritrean refugees the special attention that they deserve. It further noted that both parties were founding members of the global Progressive Alliance that was formed in 2013 and affirmed EPDP’s wish to further strengthen relations with DSDP and its Government.
It is to be recalled that a two-person EPDP delegation met the DSDP leadership at their congress held in Aalborg, Denmark, in September 2017. The EPDP delegation, composed of Central Council members Tekle Melekin and Amanuel Beraki, was among other 75 delegates representing 75 different parties and movements from Europe and other parts of the globe.
