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!

Atert-Wark – the new local government of the DP in the north of the country

The municipality of Mertzig, with its mayor Mike Poiré, has joined the local government of Redange and the merger section Atert-Wark has been formed. Until 2020 the municipality of Mertzig was part of the “Nordstad” local section.

The former Redange section has been working together with the Rambrouch section for a very long time. For this reason, the Rambrouch section with its new president will also be presented.

Corinne Cahen

Interview with the Minister for Family Affairs Corinne Cahen

For the most part, the residents are doing well. However, I get told every day by older people that they never want to be imprisoned again. I can understand that very well. We will therefore do everything in our power to ensure that everyone can live their lives independently, including in retirement and care homes.

More renaturalisation and an improved warning system

The floods of the summer have hit our country unexpectedly. In comparison to neighboring countries, Luxembourg had the chance that no one was injured. However, dramatic scenes unfolded here as well, and the water caused enormous damage. All of this in addition to a corona crisis which, on its own, is already affecting many people and companies.
