The Alternative Democratic Reform (ADR) politician shared his official resignation from Luxembourg's City Council on Facebook after having informed the Minister of Domestic Affairs.
Roy Reding explained that he felt he no longer had the time or energy to carry out his responsibilities, which is why he made the decision to resign his post in the city council.
In addition, he publicly thanked his party colleagues for the support he was given over the years.
However, he made it clear that he wasn't leaving politics. In a comment by a Facebook user who made a reference to Reding leaving politics, the politician replied "The city council, not politics!".
This statement coincides with the sentence the ADR deputy was given on Thursday morning for fraud: a one-year suspended prison sentence, and a fine of 50,000 euros.
The executive committee of the ADR met on Friday to discuss the next steps following the verdict against Roy Reding.
