ALDE Party welcomes Zelenskyy’s party to the liberal family

On an extraordinary Leaders’ meeting on 28 February to discuss the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine, representatives from ALDE Party member parties proposed to grant temporary affiliate status to Servant of the People (Слуга народу/Sluga Narodu), the party founded by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The ALDE Party Bureau subsequently adopted the proposal.  Full membership of the party will be discussed at the next ALDE Party Council in Dublin in June.

ALDE Party acting Co-Presidents Senator Timmy Dooley and Ilhan Kyuchyuk MEP were happy to welcome the new affiliate member:

As Co-President of ALDE I’m delighted to have co-chaired the meeting that formally welcomed President Zelenskyy of Ukraine and his party to our Europe wide family along side Irish member party Fianna Fail,” said Senator Dooley.

It is an honour to have President Zelenskyy’s party, Sluga Narodu and my good friend Olga Stefanishyna in the ALDE Party liberal family. We stand in solidarity with the people of Ukraine. Glory to Ukraine!” added Ilhan Kyuchyuk MEP.

During the Summit, liberal leaders stood in condemnation of President Putin’s unprovoked and unjustified military aggression on Ukraine, a deplorable act on a sovereign, democratic and pro-European country, and against our liberal values that we hold so dearly.
