Congratulations to Syriza


Dear Alexis Tsipras, 

As Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP), we congratulate you and all people of Greece on your behalf because of the historical victory you got in the general elections held on 25 January. We believe that the principles of justice, equality and liberty which you have claimed will overcome neo-liberal Troika’s press imposed on Greece people.

As two sister parties adopting itself the motto of equality and freedom of all the oppressed people, we attach importance to the solidarity and strategic cooperation between HDP and Syriza. We believe that all kinds of oppression and injustice which are imposed to the peoples of the world by global capitalist system can be eliminated by strong alliances and solidarities established between libertarian and egalitarian formations occurring anywhere in the world.

We wish you success in your way and we greet you and all people of Greece with our fraternal feelings.

We Wish SYRIZA a Great Success


The snap election on the 25th of January will give a chance to people of Greece to oust the austerity government and replace it with a SYRIZA government, government of people

SYRIZA (Radical Left Coalition) is the only political party that gives hope of change to the people of Greece who are trying to survive under the pressure of the Troika (IMF, EU, ECB) for years. We strongly believe that with the decision of people of Greece, SYRIZA will win this election and spread the hope of change to the neighbouring countries and to all Europe.

As Peoples’ Democratic Party, once again we would like to say that we are in solidarity with SYRIZA and wish all the good luck in this election.
