The ALDE Party successfully hosted three days of exciting debates, elections, and social gatherings in Warsaw in December 2016
ALDE Party President Hans van Baalen MEP opened the ALDE Party Congress with a strong message and insisting that "it is time for strong Liberal politics, to fight for Liberal solutions and defend rule of law, democracy and individual freedoms." Watch his speech and all other speakers' addresses again via the ALDE Party’s YouTube channel.
During the Congress in Warsaw, ALDE changed its logo, elected new Bureau members and welcomed new member parties from France and Macedonia. You can read a summary of all the Congress' highlights here.
Congress delegates adopted many policy resolutions on a range of important and topical matters, such as on the consequences of UK referendum on Brexit, on the protection of democracy in Ukraine and Russia, on EU-NATO defence cooperation, and on women's right to decide over their own body. All adopted resolutions can be found online at policycentre.aldeparty.eu.
It was also confirmed that the next ALDE Party Council meeting will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, in June 2017, hosted by Stranka SMC, and Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte announced that the 2017 Congress would be held in the Netherlands.
