The upcoming Dutch election is about far more than choosing between political parties on the ballot. It is about restoring the ability of Dutch people to chart their future. On March 15, voters need only ask themselves a single, key question: do you wish to govern yourselves, or do you wish to give that power away?
With the Dutch election fast approaching, this blog post aims to list all eurosceptic parties the country has on offer. Beyond helping inform Dutch voters, this is also an opportunity to underscore the diversity of euroscepticism.
As the dust settles from Italy’s “no” vote to constitutional reform, and a parliamentary vote in Westminster nudges Brexit a little bit closer to reality, the next big eurosceptic event looms large. The Dutch elect a new parliament on March 15, 2017, and there are strong indications that eurosceptic voices will take a significant share of the vote. The Netherlands has become a powderkeg of euroscepticism, and is likely the next EU domino to fall.
