“I have been engaged in many fronts the last 7 years, as party leader, in the Greens in the city and in the north, in my clubs and in my commune where I was on the communal council since October, and in my architecture firm for less time. My spare time is, of course, too short too. What happened to Camille has made me deeply reflect on things, and I know that at that moment when you risk overextending the bow, you have to let go because otherwise you risk losing everything.”
Elections for a new co-president, to join Christian Kmiotek, will be held in the autumn.
The party will also have to find a new female leader in the north of Luxembourg, where Françoise Folmer was to lead the fight with Camille Gira.
Meanwhile, on Wednesday night, the party will celebrate its 35th anniversary in Belval.
