How does the Senate deal with complex subjects, such as ESG (environmental, social and governance) policy? And how does communication contribute to this? Mei Li Vos, party leader in the Dutch Senate, visited our office.
November 23, 2023 – With the Nov. 22 national elections behind us, it is time to look ahead. The elections resulted in a landslide win for the Party for Freedom (PVV). Its leader Geert Wilders founded the party in 2006 and focussed on one key theme: the Islam. Over the years Wilders’ party had a steady base of voters, but due to its extreme statements such as prohibiting mosques and banning the Koran it was excluded from coalition talks, apart from one minority cabinet that relied on the support of the PVV before collapsing.
To the surprise of many, the PVV became the largest party. What does this mean for the Dutch political landscape? This is not merely a shift in politics, but a shift in society and one way or the other will influence businesses. For our international clients, we made an in-depth analysis of the election result.
