SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF AUSTRIA,
FEDERAL CHANCELLOR OF THE AUSTRIAN REPUBLIC
Dear Mr. Kern,
On behalf of the Political party A JUST RUSSIA and myself, I congratulate you on confirmation of appointment as Chairman of the SOCIAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF AUSTRIA and the subsequent appointment as Federal Chancellor of Austria!
The fact that your candidacy as Chairman of the SDPA was unanimously supported by representatives of land and youth organizations, women's social democratic movement and the faction in the Parliament, shows that you have high authority over the party, which will further unite the SDPA supporters and increase a number of followers of Social Democracy.
Your appointment as Federal Chancellor of the Republic of Austria opens new opportunities for the Social Democrats to achieve significant results in solving topical questions faced by the Republic at this historical juncture.
Our political parties cooperate within the framework of the Socialist International as both sides are the full members of this organization. We stand for the development and expansion of constructive cooperation with the Austrian Social Democrats on the inter-party level and through the inter-parliamentary relations.
Please accept our sincere congratulations on these high appointments. We wish you much success in your political activities for the benefit of the people of the Republic of Austria!
Chairman of the
Political party A JUST RUSSIA
