Message of congratulations to KKE

Dear comrades,

On behalf of the Central Committee and membership of the Communist Party of Australia we wish to convey to you our warmest greetings and congratulations for the great success won by KKE in the regional and Local Government elections held last Sunday (see Greek regional and municipal elections – Significant increase for the Communist Party this issue).

The substantial increase in the votes of your Party’s candidates, while all other major and smaller parties saw their electoral strength reduced, is an indication that Greece’s communist and progressive forces and the Greek people generally expressed their anger and indignation against the unpopular policies of the government, the conservative party of the official opposition as well as the IMF and the EU.

Sunday’s vote also indicates that the working people are realising the importance and have started preparing for the counter offensive by the working class as the only response capable of wresting the country from the grip of the capitalist crisis and opening the way for a people’s government to defend, restore and extend people’s rights.

In this struggle, in which the KKE plays the leading role, we wish you even greater successes for the benefit of the Greek people, for real democracy, progress and socialism.

Yours fraternally

Dr Hannah Middleton

General Secretary CC
Communist Party of Australia
