I have the privilege to congratulate you, Mr Schultz, as my dear comrade from the Party of European Socialists upon your re-election as President of the European Parliament. This event testifies to the success of both the European left-wing parties and Europe as a whole, Gediminas Kirkilas, the Deputy Speaker of the Seimas, Chair of the Committee on European Affairs and Deputy Chair of the Lithuanian Social Democratic Party, writes in his letter to the President of the European Parliament.
