PES in USA
From Monday February 4 to Friday February 8 PES President Poul Nyrup Rasmussen leads a European Socialist delegation to Washington and New York to meet leading US Democrats.
He will be there on ‘SuperTuesday’ when 22 states choose between Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and John Edwards for their candidate for the Presidential elections.Next week might be a turning point in American history – and you’ll be in front row for news!
Yourspace will be blogging from the delegation and answering your questions. What is on the Democrats’ policy agenda – and what will it mean for the PES and our manifesto for the 2009 European elections? What are the prospects for the PES and US Democrats to make the world a better place? Yourspace will put your questions to members of the delegation, and report back on issues you raise – just put your question in a comment to this post.
The PES President will be joined by Romanian Social Democrat Leader Mircea Geoana, former Swedish Finance Minister Par Nuder, Norwegian ViceFinance Minister Geir Axlesen, Norwegian Secretary of State for Defence Espen Barth Eide and Socialist Members of the European Parliament including Pervenche Beres, Harlem Desir, Ieke van den Burg, Jan Marinus Wiersma, Stavros Lambrinidis and Lapo Pistelli.
