Young liberals elect new leadership at LYMEC’s Congress

European liberals are gearing up for the European elections in 2024. To take on the mission, young liberals voted for the team that would lead them for the next two years, among other things, during the European Liberal Youth’s (LYMEC), ALDE Party’s youth wing, Spring Electoral Congress in Prague, Czech Republic.

The elections were more competitive than ever, with seven candidates running to become members of the LYMEC Bureau. Each candidate ran a very professional and knowledgeable campaign and we would like to congratulate the following members who make up the new LYMEC Bureau 2022-2024:

  • President: Dan-Aria Sucuri (Sweden)
  • Vice-President: Ines Holzegger (Austria)
  • Treasurer: Tuuli Helind (Estonia)
  • Bureau members: Laia Comerma (Catalonia, Spain), Alexandre Servais (Belgium), Ellinor Juth (Finland) and Tanzer Yuseinov (Bulgaria)

The event was attended by over 150 people in person from LYMEC member organizations as well as over 90 people connecting online.

It counted with a series of keynote speeches from liberal leaders such as: ALDE Party co-Presidents Ilhan Kyuchyuk MEP and Senator Timmy Dooley, ALDE Party Vice-Presidents Daniel Berg and Dita Charanzová MEP, and Laurence Farreng MEP, Abir Al-Sahlani MEP and Svenja Hahn MEP.

During the weekend, LYMEC also welcomed three new full members and two associate members to the liberal family. Congratulations to the Young Liberal Greens of Switzerland, Youth Democratic Movement Vesna of Russia and Movement For Youth! Latvia on your full membership and to Youth of Democratic Alignment Cyprus and Ze!Molodizhka Ukraine on your associate membership.

On Saturday night, Svenja Hahn MEP, Ondřej Kovařík MEP and Martin Hlaváček MEP spoke of their plans for the European Year of Youth and the Czech Presidency in a debate moderated by the newly elected President Dan-Aria Sucuri and Markéta Plesníková, President of Mladé ANO.

We would especially like to thank the outgoing President Antoaneta Asenova-Bihlmayer who expertly led LYMEC for the last two years.
