At the first national congress since the Covid pandemic where physcial presence was again possible, our party elected a new leadership. On the 12th June at the Centre Artert in Bertrange, around 300 members of the DP voted for a large majority for Lex Delles (President), Carole Hartmann (General secretary) Max Hahn (1st Vice President), Marc Hansen and Claude Lamberty (2nd Vice President) and Myriam Feyder (Treasurer). Our steering committee was elected at the same time.

It was the last congress for Corinne Cahen as president. The Minister for Family Affairs, similarly to the other speakers, highlighted the good handling of the crisis and ended her speech with an emotional goodbye.

Prime Minister Xavier Bettel and the entire room thanked Corinne Cahen with a standing ovation.
