The director of Luxembourg's Automobile Club (ACL) has resigned following Sunday's election results.

The director of Luxembourg's Automobile Club (ACL) has resigned following Sunday's election results.

It has emerged that Daniel Tesch stepped down from his post following a controversy over the fact he stood as an electoral candidate in Sunday's national elections for the DP party.

Mr Tesch received 10,516 votes in the Centre district on Sunday, a number which was not sufficient to win him a seat.

When the director formalised his candidacy in July, he made it clear that it was a personal move, which would not affect his work at the helm of Luxembourg's biggest motoring organisation.
