Dury running as interim president
Luxembourg Union LCGB is to elect an interim president on November 18, following the resignation of Robert Weber from the post earlier this month.
In a press conference on the state of the LCGB on Tuesday it was announced that nominations will remain open until November 3.
So far, Secretary General Patrick Dury is the only candidate running for the post.
The new interim president will be in office until the next national congress in 2014. The LCGB decided against the convening of a national congress before then, as this is a lengthy process. Dury commented that the LCGB wants to be able to continue its work efficiently. The new position will be elected by the general council, but only members of the central committee are able to run for the post.
After 90 years of the LCGB, Dury said there was no need for the organisation to justify its existence. At the same time he highlighted that the LCGB needed to adjust to the current situation and economic climate without losing its identity. With changes afoot the LCGB hopes to be able to foster and keep its know-how and start into a successful 2012 under the new leadership.
