LYMEC elects new leadership at first-ever online Congress

The European Liberal Youth organisation LYMEC held its Congress last Saturday, 4 April. Originally scheduled to be held in Skopje, North Macedonia, it was held online – a first time for LYMEC – because of the almost Europe-wide lockdown as a result of the Corona crisis. In her opening speech, outgoing President of LYMEC Svenja Hahn MEP said: “These are trying times for all of us. As LYMEC we want democracy to prevail, and therefore we decided to hold the Congress online."

The Congress elected a new Bureau under the leadership of Antoaneta Asenova, the new LYMEC President. In addition, the Congress elected a new Vice-President, Dan-Aria Sucuri, and a Treasurer, Marten Porte as well as four bureau members: Ida-Maria Skytte, Ines Holzegger, Laia Comerma and Marina Sedlo. In her closing words, Antoaneta said: “I am humbled with gratitude. I couldn't have expected such a tremendous support and positive feedback from all of you! Looking forward to working with all of you, stay safe and healthy - and thank you for making LYMEC’s first digital Congress such a success!”

Thank you to Svenja and the outgoing team and congratulations to Antoaneta and the new Bureau!

LYMEC also welcomed new member organizations. Uppreisn: Ungliðahreyfing Viðreisnar from Iceland is a new full member and the Jeunes Vert'libéraux from Switzerland is a new associate member organization.

More information will be made available soon on the LYMEC website.
