Zottegemnaar Robin De Cubber (28) was appointed as acting chairman of Jong CD&V Nationaal after the resignation of the previous chairman Kevin Maas (30).
Kevin Maas said he resigned to focus on his engagement with YEPP (Youth of the European People’s Party) and on his work as a general practitioner in Maasmechelen. Robin De Cubber is also a member of the CD&V national bureau and chairman of the CD&V youth in Zottegem. “I am extremely honored to lead our political youth movement as Acting National President for the coming months. In the coming months, my focus will mainly be on keeping our youth movement moving and organizing the presidential elections. As of today, we will start the process towards the election of a new chairman, in which I, together with the national coordinator of the JONGCD&V secretariat, Jonah Penninck (24, also from Zottegem, ed.) will try to bring these elections to a successful conclusion.”
