Board Resigns From Opposition Party Momentum
The board of the opposition Momentum Movement announced its resignation at the party’s assembly, Momentum said over the weekend. “There were a lot of lessons to be learned from this campaign -- our leadership has made a decision in line with the values that can be expected from Momentum,” the statement said.

As the board had vowed to get the party into parliament in last month’s election, but failed, Momentum’s delegates rejected the board’s report, the party said in a statement. 

As a result, the board assumed responsibility for Momentum’s election performance and kept its promise of resigning, they added.

The party added that in accordance with a resolution adopted at the assembly, it would elect its new leaders in early summer.

The members who have just resigned will be free to run for leadership positions again, they added. Until its new leaders are elected, Momentum will be run by its directorate.
