Due to the internal problems of the CAF and the CAE, those two organizations opted for its self-dissolution and boosted the creation of a new galician student union. That organization would be Comités, that had its constituent assembly in May 2008.

In 2011 a group of more than 150 militants abandoned Comités, and accused the direction of undemocratic practices and of being subordinated to the Galician People's Union strategy.[2] The splitters would create the same year the Galician Student League.[3]
