Congratulations with the excellent election results of last Sunday. We deeply respect the hard work, the sacrifices and the political maturity which made this result possible. The political breaktrough your party has realized not only favours the democratic process in Turkey, but also promotes your struggle for better living conditions of the ordinary people. We wish you strenght and courage in the near future, which probably won’t be easy. Finally, you should know that your success inspires us in our struggle for democracy and socialism.
