The Elections Committee of the Young Democrat Union of Africa (YDUA) has elected Louisa Atta-Agyemang as President of the organisation for a second term after members of the group unanimously voted for her to continue with her work.
She is expected to lead the YDUA for one year.
The Secretary of the Election Committee observed that the election was one of the most profound experiences in his career and that members exhibited a very high sense of professionalism.
Held on the sidelines of the annual conference of the YDUA, which is ongoing in Malawi under the theme: “Moving From Aspirations To Action: Young People's Engagement In National, Continental, And Global Politics”, the elections were convened by youth leaders from all centre-right political parties in Africa.
During the conference, several high profile speakers openly celebrated the exceptional leadership qualities of President Atta-Agyemang, extolling in particular, her courage and bravery to speak against dictatorial and authoritarian regimes and advocating strongly for the rule of law.
It came as no surprise that her comrades overwhelmingly affirmed her mandate for a second term running without any contestations.
In her acceptance speech, President Atta-Agyemang remarked, “We look forward to working constructively and collectively with the members of YDUA to build a secure and peaceful Africa, where the hopes and aspirations of young people are tenable”.
