The Chamber of Deputies has named Véronique “Nicky” Stoffel of the ADR to the Council of State.
The vote, held on Tuesday, was 39 for, 6 against, 8 abstentions and 1 blank ballot, as Paperjam reported on 28 February.
Stoffel is a commercial lawyer, who was called to the Luxembourg Bar in 1999, according to her firm’s website.
She replaces Albert Rodesch of the LSAP, who served the maximum 15 years on the body, which acts as a pseudo-upper chamber of parliament.
It is the first time that the conservative ADR party has had a seat on the council, which now will have seven female and 14 male members. The law requires at least seven women or at least seven men to serve at any given time.
The next opening will be in October 2019, when Romain Nati, a doctor, will step down.
