Dr Sezai Temelli and Ms Pervin Buldan
Athens, 25 June 2018
On behalf of the Central Committee of SYRIZA, we would like to convey our warmest greetings and congratulate you on your big success in the Presidential and Legislative elections.
Under extremely difficult conditions, you succeeded in expressing the desire of the people of Turkey for democracy, social justice and human rights.
We salute the great effort of HDP members and the courage and endurance of HDP voters in overcoming the obstacles and exercising your constitutional rights.
You and your imprisoned presidential candidate, Selahhatin Demirtas, are a source of inspiration for every democratic citizen.
SYRIZA re-affirms its willingness to work together with all progressive, democratic forces of Turkey in the direction of maintaining peaceful and friendly Greek-Turkish relations and HDP, as the 3rd biggest political pillar in Turkey, has a crucial role to play in this effort.
With feelings of friendship and solidarity,
Secretary of the Central Committee
Member of the Political Secretariat, Head of European & International Affairs
