LYMEC, the youth organisation of the ALDE Party, held its autumn congress from 13 to 15 November, taking place online due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
During the congress, LYMEC welcomed new member organisations: Young Liberals (Greece), Nova Stranka Youth (Serbia), Par Jauniešiem (Latvia) and Vesna Youth Democratic Movement (Russia).
The mandate of the current LYMEC Secretary General, Gyévai Bàlint, was also renewed for the coming two years.
Moreover, the congress participants adopted a number of resolutions, ranging from the right to abortion to tackling cyber attacks. In line with the stance of the ALDE Party and the Liberal International, LYMEC also called the EU to support Taiwan as a full liberal democracy, which has fought the COVID-19 pandemic successfully and with respect to the rule of law.
More information on the adopted resolutions will be available on LYMEC’s website in the coming days.
