Celebration of ASEAN Day

6 Nov 2022

On 11 August, in celebration of ASEAN Day (8 August), the Libdems Overseas (LDO) group based in Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia held a virtual meet-up with guest speaker, Lord Wallace of Saltaire.

On the agenda was the very important topic of how to prepare Brits living abroad to register and vote in future general elections and national referendums.
