European Socialist Party to accept PD as member, chief says (ANSA) - Rome, February 27 - The president of the Party of European Socialists (PES), Serghei Stanishev, expressed confidence Thursday that Italy's centre-left Democratic Party's request to join will be approved.

"I am sure that the PD request for it to be fully welcomed into the PES will be accepted unanimously tomorrow (at the PES meeting in Rome), he said. "Without the PD, our family remains incomplete, tomorrow it will finally become complete".

The PES is holding its annual congress in Rome on February 28 and March 1. Stanishev is also scheduled to meet with Italy's freshly appointed Premier Matteo Renzi during his trip.
