Jena/Göschwitz (dpa/th) - Christopher Hubrich remains state chairman of the Young Liberals in Thuringia. At the meeting of the youth organization of the FDP in Jena, he was re-elected with 25 yes votes - with one no vote and two abstentions. With around 30 participants, the state congress was twice as well attended as the last one, which took place in person, said a spokesman. "We have created a new face for Thuringia," said Hubrich on Saturday at the beginning of the congress. The fact that there are now "new JuLis" is "really, really great," said the 27-year-old political science student. In the course of the day, the elections for his deputy are also pending.
The expected Federal Chair of the Young Liberals, Franziska Brandmann, was unable to attend, but was represented by her deputy, Paavo Czwikla. In terms of content, it should be about education at the end of the school year. The young liberals criticize "a sluggish inclusion and digitization" in the Thuringian school system.
