As per ALDE Party statutes, delegation lists closes one week prior to the Council Meeting. The deadline for closure of delegations is Friday 20 April 2018 at 12:00 CET. After this time, International Officers will still be able to validate the attendance of delegates from their parties, but will no longer be able to allocate voting rights or make changes to their delegations. The ALDE Party Bureau can allow for changes to delegations in exceptional circumstances such as flight cancellation, sickness or unforeseen political developments. These changes can be made at the registration desk onsite at Council in Sofia.
Owing to the non-secretive nature of votes on membership applications and smaller number of resolutions to be treated at a Council Meeting, voting in Sofia will be by show of hand, not electronic voting pad. As normal, voting delegates are identifiable from non-voting guests by the colour of their badges.
A complete delegation list, showing number of voting delegates per party can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
As stated in the Internal Regulations of the ALDE Party, at the Council meeting only full member Parties can propose urgency resolutions. These must relate to current or recent political events or to topical issues that have occurred since the last meeting of the Council. Draft urgencies may not exceed 300 words. The Council shall decide which draft urgency resolutions to debate, after considering the recommendation by the Bureau.
Draft urgency resolutions must be submitted to the online platform http://debate.aldeparty.eu, which will be available as of Friday 20 April. International Officers will have access to the system via the password they have previously been issued. If you do not have a password, contact the ALDE Party Secretariat on the contact details below immediately. As a first time user, please register as indicated on the online platform.
The deadline for submitting urgency resolutions is Friday 27 April at 15:00 CET
For any queries related to urgency resolutions, their content, submission, or discussion procedure, please contact:
