SocDem Asia Congratulatory message to FRETILIN's appointment to key ministries in the Government of Timor-Leste

30 June 2020

Mr. Mari Alkatiri
Frente Revolucionaria de Timor-Leste Independente (FRETILIN)

Dear Mr. Alkatiri,

On behalf of the Network for Social Democracy in Asia (SocDem Asia) we would like to warmly congratulate FRETILIN on the appointment of its members to key ministries in the Government of Timor-Leste. We understand that FRETILIN after much reflection and analysis of the country’s current situation made a decision to support the government to provide much needed political stability to the country.

It is important that under these precarious economic, social, and health conditions affecting the world social democratic parties such as FRETILIN must step forward to provide political leadership to push governments and countries towards a more equitable and fairer future. We are optimistic that FRETILIN will accomplish this task.

We hope to meeting you soon under more normal conditions and to further strengthen the partnership between FRETILIN, SocDem Asia and other member-parties.

For the Steering Committee of SocDem Asia,

Machris Cabreros
Network Coordinator
