  • considering what happened at the last General Assembly of Stand up for Europe in Munich on the occasion of the election of a new executive board which was postponed, officially for absence of fair democratic procedures but, in reality, because the former President of our Association had refused to establish an electoral committee before the elections (as the majority of the board responsibly asked) it being impossible otherwise to check the enormous number of proxies, the last minute subscriptions and the identity of all the persons;
  • considering that at the Convention some questions were directly addressed to the President Mr. Richard Laub during the “questions time” by some members about certain students and members having their travel and hotel expenses paid in order to attend the Convention and that these questions remained and still remain without his answers;
  • considering that after the Assembly the Electoral Committee, appointed and nominated by the General Assembly in order to solve these problems, was forced to stop its activity including the resignation of its President and members because any attempt to achieve an agreement for ensuring fair, transparent and democratic elections was boycotted and even legally challenged by Mr. Laub, breaking the independence that this Committee needed in order to accomplish its objectives;
  • considering that he is every day, behind the scenes, threatening the executive board and part of the co-founders of the Stand up for Europe association with a legal challenge;
  • considering that a President should be a representative, fair, helpful, transparent, honorable and friendly figure of a citizens grassroots movement, on every occasion ready and resolute in order to fulfill any request and question coming from the members and that we need this kind of figure at the top of our association;
we, the undersigned ask that, having lost the trust of the members of Stand up for Europe, Mr. Laub immediately steps down as President of our Association, leaving the executive board before the next election and we call on Richard Laub not to run in the elections for President anymore to prevent further damage to our movement Stand up for Europe
