The European Democratic Party welcomed on the occasion of its Council meeting on June 5 in Rome, the new membership of the Democratic Republican Party (Partido Democrático Republicano), from Portugal.

Founded this year by the MEP António Marinho e Pinto, the PDR is based on three pillars: liberty, justice, solidarity.

The EDP co-chair François Bayrou was in Lisbon on May 24 for the PDR founding Congress. He sees in the birth of new political movement the proof of the vitality of the pluralism spirit, so necessary for the democratic life. “There are very few moments like this in the politic life, when we are the witnesses of a new party’s birth. Like a child, it looks fragile. But inside, there is a formidable force, a much needed force for Portugal and Europe”, concluded François Bayrou.
