Digitalkongress 2020

DP Digital Congress

On the 15th of June, the DP held the first digital political congress in Luxembourg.

#INNOVATIVE

There were continuously over 600 members following us via ‘Zoom’, the Facebook live streams, on Youtube and via our party’s website dp.lu.

#INTERACTIVE

76 questions were raised to our ministers during the Live Q&A, 12 party members spoke live.

#DEMOCRATIC

131 candidates participated in the elections and twice as many members as in the previous year casted their vote.

Digitalkongress 2020

On June 15th 2020, at 20:39 local time, the Democratic Party wrote history. As the first political party ever in Luxembourg, we organized a successful digital congress. The congress is known to be the most important date of the year for our party. We always enjoy remembering the pictures of a crowded ‘Tramsschapp’. But it is exactly these images that explain why a traditional congress during the Corona pandemic was not an option.

„For the DP, now is not the time to start saving at the expense of our citizens and our businesses”

CORINNE CAHEN

Digitalkongress 2020 - Corinne Cahen

Alongside the digital aspects and the viewers’ participation, it was of course the political speeches that made this national congress a highlight. Party president Corinne Cahen made a strong plea in her speech for local businesses and the local production chains that would require help and support now more than ever. The DP will therefore continue to keep investments at a high level, to build trust, and to invest into our people and our businesses.

„It is important to reinforce our freedoms and to fight so that our democracy – the way we value it – remains strong.”

XAVIER BETTEL

Digitalkongress 2020 - Xavier Bettel

Prime Minister Xavier Bettel is of the same opinion, and in his speech took a look at the human aspects of the sanitary crisis. It has been made abundantly clear to us how important social contacts and interaction are, and we have come to learn what it feels like when our freedoms are at stake.

Once the sanitary situation allows for it, we will of course organise a congress in real life, with drinks and interesting conversations. We are looking forward to seeing all of you again!

Yuriko Backes

Yuriko Backes – the new minister of finance

As Minister of Finance, a natural priority is to ensure that our public finances remain sound. This is because we want to prepare our country for the future by focusing on sustainable development and investing in digital development.

Citizens’ Assembly

Prime Minister Xavier Bettel announced the formation of a Citizens’ Assembly on the Climate last autumn. It all started at the end of January: In the first of around 15 meetings, the members were first informed about the current state of affairs in climate policy.

Xavier Bettel

Focus on social cohesion

In his state of the nation address, Prime Minister Xavier Bettel highlighted the social-liberal aims of the government by announcing new social measures.

Gilles Baum

“Cheers” to our excellent wine and crémants

Gilles Baum recently requested a debate on viticulture in the Chamber of Deputies. In his eyes, viticulture is not only an important economic sector of our country, but also an essential part of our national heritage. The DP therefore insists on a regular discussion of the topic in Parliament.

Spotlight: Sheila Schmit

Sheila Schmit has definitely found her way. Two years ago she started her own business as a freelance midwife. Before that, she had worked for 15 years at the Esch hospital, among other places. But she was tired of shift work, the organisational structure in the hospital and the working conditions.
