Sólveig Anna Jónsdóttir, chairman of Efling, was appointed as vice president of ASÍ for a term of two years.

I am very proud of the members who took part and spoke at the session.“, she said.

I look forward to the collaboration and hope the president‘s work will bear fruit in the coming months, as we are facing immense challenges.“ said Sólveig Anna.
