Green MP Claude Adam announced his resignation from parliament on Tuesday saying he would step down on 16 April.
Adam, who has been a member of the Déi Gréng party since 1999, was first elected in 2004 for the centre constituency. A resident of Mersch, he served on numerous commissions, relating to culture, education, media and environment, among others.
In a 2014 interview with Paperjam, he said he lived by the motto that we are responsible not only for everything we do but also for the things we don’t do. He also said that in 50 years he hoped to be remembered for his sincerity and engagement.
Adam is expected to be succeeded by Sam Tanson, who currently sits on Luxembourg City Council and the Council of State.
