Celebrating the 100th anniversary of CSV
On January 16 the grand celebration of the centenary of one of the most influential parties of the Grand Duchy — Christian Social Party (CSV) — took place in Luxembourg.
The party leaders Michel Wolter and Jean-Claude Juncker told what the party had been able to achieve during the 100 years of its existence. Both noted that, despite being in opposition, at the recent parliamentary elections the party has achieved impressive results — 23 seats in Parliament. This is higher than the result of the parties that formed the coalition government (LSAP, DP, Greens). «Party history — a success story», — said J.-C.Juncker.
Next CSV National Congress which is supposed to be in early February, will choose the president and secretary general of the party. The main candidates for these positions — Marc Spautz et Laurent Zeimet.
