The leader of the Party of European Socialists, Sergei Stanishev, told EurActiv he was "proud" that his European political family was the first to come up with a clear position on the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA), which he says is against the interests of European citizens.
The Socialists yesterday (9 February) issued a strongly worded declaration, calling the ACTA agreement - recently signed by the Commission and 22 EU states (see background) - "wrong in both content and process".

Stanishev told journalists that the Party of European Socialists has found a new war horse to mark its identity before the European electorate.

The PES leader blasted the secrecy under which the anti-counterfeiting agreement was drafted, saying that gradually, even countries that signed ACTA will realise they should not ratify the agreement. The ratification process takes place both at the national level and in the European Parliament, where a vote is expected in June.
More and more politicians are taking a stand against the treaty. It remains to be seen how it shall pass the ratification process at national levels, since there are protests in several countries. Croatia included as of today
