Submitted by Jovana Gjorgjiovska on 3 September 2013
Team “Lithistan 3”, comprised of Egle Kavaliunaite from Lithuania and Ahmed Shujaan from Pakistan won the 2013 British Parliamentary Tournament after an interesting final against teams “Mr Potato” (Petar Ivanovski - Macedonia and Katliin Lember - Estonia), “Lithistan 1” (Justinas Mickus - Lithuania and Zainab Hamid - Pakistan) and “Lithistan 2” (Simonas Bartulis - Lithuania and Azeem Liaquat - Pakistan). The motion was "THBT digital communication is more important to humanity than face-to-face in person communication."
