Luxembourg’s new parliament met on Tuesday for the first time since the elections, swearing in the deputies whose credentials were declared valid.
The elected candidates who are members of the government did not, however, take the oath during Tuesday’s session. See the chart below for the full list.
According to the government, if these ministers are not appointed to the future government, they will be sworn in at a future public session once the government is formed. This is because an individual cannot hold both the role of a minister or secretary of state and a deputy.
The first public session was chaired by the longest-serving MP, Gast Gibéryen (ADR), who was assisted by the two youngest elected candidates: Sven Clement (Piraten) and François Benoy (déi gréng). The credentials committee, which verifies the credentials of elected candidates and checks the elections were correctly carried out, was appointed through drawing lots. The seven members are:
Diane Adehm (CSV)
Aly Kaes (CSV)
Sam Tanson (déi gréng)
Roy Reding (ADR)
Viviane Reding (CSV)
Roberto Traversini (déi gréng)
Michel Wolter (CSV)
The public meeting was suspended until the seven members of the Credentials Committee had completed their work. Sam Tanson (déi gréng), was appointed rapporteur for the commission’s report.
