12th YYES Congress is over and new Presidium is getting ready for work.

More than 230 delegates from more than 56 youth and sister organizations gathered in Winterthur for our 12th Congress.

Three days full of interesting,and sometimes tense discussions, compromises, voting, emotions and fun ended with the election of our new President, Secretary General, President of the Control Commission and 10 Vice Presidents.

After 5 hours of waiting and intense counting the Congress Presidium announced the results.

LAURA SLIMANI was elected for the position of YES President, NINA ZIVANOVIC was elected as YES Secretary General.

ELISA SELINUMMI is a new President of the YES Control Commission composed by LEONIEKE KALKMAN, ADRIANA MALDONADO LOPEZ, MATEJA PAVICIC, and JACK STORRY.

The battle between 13 extremely good candidates for the posts of Vice presidents ended by victory of: DARINA AGHA, JOAO ALBUQUERQUE, ALEXANDER BERTELSEN, NAOMI DUTZI, GÖKCE GÖKCEN, NEVA GRAŠiČ,  SPAS KERIMOV, JOHANNA KLINGBEIL, MARIS SILD and last and not least NEIL WARNER.

Among others resolutions that we will post shortly we also approved a policy paper on GREEN SOCIALISM and policy PAPER on DEMOCRACY.

Our sincere thanks go to all candidates, delegates, staff, volunteers, hosting organization, trust team, Congress presidium and guests who worked hard on preparations and made the successful  Congress happen.
