GroenLinks MP Snels resigns due to PvdA collaboration

Bart Snels of GroenLinks stops as a member of parliament because he does not agree with his party’s cooperation with the PvdA. Snels is the party’s financial spokesperson and one of the confidants of GroenLinks leader Klaver. Wednesday 27 October is his last day.

After the elections to the House of Representatives, the left-wing parties GroenLinks and PvdA started to work together more closely. Snels does not like that at all, he explains in the letter in which he announces his departure to Chamber President Bergkamp. He speaks of “voter fraud”.

“They are two different parties, with different voter groups and a different way of doing politics,” Snels said. He believes that the PvdA is in just as big a crisis as the CDA. “It is not clear to me what the PvdA really stands for and I do not like the opportunistic style of politics.”
