We announce the election of our new board, voted by over 250 delegates at our bi-annual congress held in Porto and Maia on the 16th May. Konstantinos Kyranakis of ONNED,Greece, is the first president to be re-elected for the second time in the history of the organisation.
A challenging mandate lies ahead, as the new board is committed to continue being the voice of the millions of young Europeans who are aligned with our values of a small government, a competitive and open market, a respect of the rule of law and a stronger EU in the global environment.
