In the Netherlands, a demonstrator wearing clothing with the logo of the political party LEF caused a brief disruption during a final debate on NOS. He shouted from close range at politicians from VVD, NSC, and GroenLinks-PvdA, accusing them of belonging to “old politics.” He also told VVD leader Dilan Yeşilgöz that her party should “never come to power again.”
The incident occurred in the reception hall of the temporary House of Representatives. The demonstrator was quickly removed by security. Despite continuing to shout for a while, the debate continued almost immediately. It has been reported that Daniël van Duijn, the leader of LEF, is responsible for this incident. According to polls, his new party has little chance and is trying to attract attention with striking actions. Van Duijn recently disrupted the broadcast of Buitenhof by pasting a poster of his party on the window of the recording location.
The activist called Pieter Omtzigt “old fart” before turning his attention to Yeşilgöz and telling her that her party must “never come to power again” and that they are letting people down. He accused Frans Timmermans (GL-PvdA) of handing over the Netherlands to capitalism. However, further investigation into his statements showed that this information was not accurate.
