We are pleased to introduce our CRISIS committee, with a topic that has been analyzed and debated upon everywhere across the globe: “Tories vs Labour – The Road to Brexit.”

The UK is in crisis. Everybody thinks that Brexit negotiations have gone badly, people are confused, terrified and critical. Where is Britain heading? Where did it all actually begin?


Tories vs Labour: The Road to Brexit

The Chairpersons

Her Majesty's Government
The Conservative Party

Andrei Petrescu

Esteemed members of the British Parliament, I am Andrei (but you will call me Codyfa) and I will be chairing the Conservative Party in the Crisis Simulation of the Brexit debate.  Even though I am currently a freshman at Politehnica University of Bucharest-Aerospace Engineering, I can guarantee you a top notch academic at LazarMUN as politics, history and international relations are my passions and have represented most of my extracurricular activities for the past 2 years. I can barely wait to meet you all in February!

Sara Mihalache

Hello, LazărMUN! My name is Sara Mihalache and I’m an 11th grader at Saint Sava National College. After last year’s wonderful experience, I am eager to be returning to LazarMUN, this time as a chairperson of the Crisis Committee. People usually describe me as talkative, open-minded but strongly opinionated. My MUN placards most often include the phrase „Strong essences are kept in small bottles”. Besides my passion for public speaking and politics, I can usually be found having coffee with friends, listening to the same Lorde albums on repeat or obsessing over my cats.

Anastasia Cuzuc

Hi, everyone! My name is Anastasia and I am a junior at Gheorghe Lazăr National College. My MUN career began almost a year ago, at the first edition of Lazăr MUN, therefore it’s an amazing experience for me to return right where I started in order to chair the CRISIS Committee. My passion for MUNs doesn’t just stem from my love for debate and public speaking, but from the wish to be challenged and create long-lasting friendships. Needless to say, I am brimming with excitement for this conference to begin.

Cristiana Rîcu

Hi everyone! My name is Cristiana and I’m a junior at “Saint Sava” National College. LazărMUN will be my 9th conference and I’m very excited to be chairing my favorite committee: CRISIS. When I’m not going to MUNs you can find me studying for medicine or at the local climbing gym. I look forward to seeing all of you in February!
