Congratulations to Social Democratic Party of Denmark

Media Statement by DAP International Secretary and MP for Bukit Bendera Liew Chin Tong on 17th September 2011

The Democratic Action Party of Malaysia extends its warmest congratulations to the Social Democratic Party of Denmark for their hard earned electoral victory.

Both DAP and Social Democratic Party of Denmark are members of Socialist International, a worldwide organisation comprising 162 progressive parties and organisations.

As a party that is also committed to progressive reforms in gender equality and the empowerment of women, we are inspired by the designation of Helle Thorning-Schmidt as Denmark’s first female prime minister.

SDP Denmark’s commitment to broaden and strengthen social services, while maintaining sensible spending to control the deficit, are deeply in line with our core values of solidarity and equal opportunity.

We look forward to forthcoming developments in Danish politics with great confidence in the changes to come.

Liew Chin Tong
