Another record result!
The Dutch animal welfare party “Partij voor de Dieren” moves into the national parliament of the Netherlands with 6 seats!
In the capital, Amsterdam, it received an incredible 7.1% and in many other cities and towns, the election results were similarly high.
There are a total of 150 seats in the “Tweede Kamer der Staten-Generaal”, as the parliament is officially called.
The election result has not yet been fully counted, but it is expected to be 3.8% for the “Partij voor de Dieren”, which is an increase of 0.6 percentage points and one seat more than before.
It has been represented at the national level in Parliament since 2006 and in the European Parliament since 2014.
One single success story since it was founded in 2002. The right to vote in the Netherlands is particularly fair and also enables smaller parties to participate in political processes.
In the meantime, the Dutch Animal Welfare Party, initially led by Marianne Thieme and currently by Esther Ouwehand, is no longer a small party!
Even government participation could now be possible!
Some media have already reported on it and if this proves to be the case, an era change in politics could be imminent.
Finally, compassion would have a place in the decisions of a national government.
We keep our fingers crossed for our Dutch sister party!
