Unique in AEGEE History: An Extraordinary Agora will most likely be held in January as part of the impeachment procedure called against AEGEE-Nijmegen member and European Citizenship Working Group Coordinator Maaike. In a recent and seemingly innocent interview about her new tasks as coordinator, Maaikes tongue slipped and she accidentally revealed that her ‘guilty pleasure’ is eating Pizza with Pineapple.
The network was outraged, to bring it subtly. Many people are angry at Maaike and feel disinformed about this important fact. Calvin (AEGEE-Sheffield) responds: “I thought I was running against a human being, but now I regret withdrawing my candidature”
Maaike herself responded cool at first: “Why are people so outraged? I’ve loved Pizza with Pineapple for years! Maybe I didn’t actually eat it during the Agora, but that was just not to offend the Italians. People complain I didn’t tell them about it and hey, it’s not like anyone asked?!”
Jorge (former coordinator of the Jorge Jorge Working Jorge) responded to our reporter: “How can this happen and how did this not come out during the Agora in Salerno? I will personally call in the Impeachment procedure to have her kicked out and hold new elections for a European Citizenship Working Group Coordinator”.
Several members of the Comité Directeur already showed first signs of support and told special reporter Anna Pamplona they are investigating the situation. According to the CIA, if during a CD meeting over half of the members of the Comité Directeur support an impeachment procedure, an extraordinary Agora must be held to vote on it. On this Agora, a super majority of two-thirds of the members of the Agora must vote in favour of the impeachment. If this happens, Maaike will be replaced by the Vice Coordinator of the European Citizenship Working Group.
AEGEE-Aachen has already showed their interest in organizing such an Aachora.
