New Zealander Secures Top Socialist Position

The Standard reports;

Jacinda Ardern, former Young Labour president and political advisor, has just been elected president of the International Union of Socialist Youth - a group encompassing socialist, social democratic and Labour Party youth organisations from more than 100 countries.

IUSY is a massive organisiation and holds consultative status with the United Nations. This is a huge achievement.

Aged 27, and hailing from Morrinsville, Ms Ardern is just the second female IUSY president in 101 years. She was elected uncontested at IUSY’s world congress held in the Dominican Republic yesterday.

IUSY is the youth wing of the Socialist International.

Once the SI barred communist parties from joining or participating in SI activities, but that has changed in the past fifteen years.

Now the SI has been so penetrated by "former", current and semi-communist parties that the distinction has been lost.

In 2007 June Jacinda Adern represented IUSY at a meeting of the Council of the Socialist International in Geneva.

Member parties in attendance included;

Socialist Party of Albania-reincarnation of the hardline communist Albanian Party of Labour

MPLA(Angola) ruling ex??? commununists

Bulgarian Social Democrats-offshoot of Communist Party

Bulgarian Socialist Party-reincarnation of Communist Party

New Democratic Party (Canada)-strong crypto communist element

Pakistan People’s Party-communist origins, communist infiltrated

Democratic Left Alliance (Poland)-reincarnation of Communist Party

Former Helen Clark staffer, Jacinda Adern is going places.

Not sure I want the rest of the country to follow.

I'm a Canadian. I assure you that the New Democratic Party does not have a strong "crypto-Communist" element! I can't imagine where you got this idea. It's a middle of the road social democratic party.

Touching naivety anon.

Since the days of NDP founder Tommy (the Commie)Douglas, the NDP has been dominated by the far left, including some hardcore marxists.
