D66 holds congress ahead of regional elections

ALDE Party member D66 held their spring congress ahead of the upcoming regional elections of 20 March, that will also determine the seats in the Dutch Senate for the coming 4 years.

It was D66’ first congress since long time party leader Alexander Pechtold stepped down. A new party leader will only be elected when new national elections are due in 2 years. Speeches were held by the D66 parliamentary group leader Rob Jetten, D66 deputy prime minister Kajsa Ollongren and co-founder of La République en Marche (LREM) Astrid Panosyan.

Panosyan spoke about “the need to create a new Europe, with the windows and doors open. We need to work in close cooperation with not just political parties, but also grass roots and social movements, unions, advocates of sustainability and others who want to support and build a better Europe.”
