DP defends its policies, is optimistic for the October elections
At the new year’s event of the liberal DP, the party leader Corinne Cahen defined her party as “the only one believing in Luxembourg’s success story”, according to Paperjam.
This “success story” is characterised by the multilingualism, high growth and low unemployment, according to the current family minister.
The secretary general, Claude Lamberty, called the DP a party of “ideas and visions” at the event, which was held at the Centre culturel op der Schéiss in Belair.
Despite mediocre opinion polls, Lamberty argued that his party’s results were better than those of May 2013, a few months before the snap elections after which his party came to power.
The party representatives underlined the work they had done, such as the tax reform, the education reform, but also the reforms in family policies, such as parental leave.
The DP wants to continue its current policies, which has made peoples’ lives better, according to them.
Regarding the issue of the status of Luxembourgish in society, Cahen said: “The wealth of our country is our identity, but also the identity of our new arrivals. We don’t want assimilation, but integration.” The main challenge was to live together, which, she argued, worked well at the moment. Previously, the DP party leader had often declared that the wealth of the country was its diversity.
