D66 leader Kaag called on Metoo victims to report: “People can come to me” |  Policy

D66 calls on potential Metoo victims to continue reporting. With the new complaints procedure, the party also hopes to make anonymous testimonials possible.

This is what D66 Chairman Victor Everhardt said this afternoon during a press conference on the hitherto withheld appendix to the Integrity Report. D66 received 19 reports of infringing behavior, and only 7 people indicated they wanted to start a new conversation. Fearing harm to their jobs, others decided to remain silent after all. Nor would it have been possible to report completely anonymously, but according to party chief Everhardt, that has now changed.

One of the reports in the report was about Party leader Frans van Dremelen resigned on Wednesday† In his position as a talented scout at D66, he was able to make or break careers.

Kaag and the party chief will remain in office after the case. Kaag argues that her party’s leadership should be weighed more broadly than this “single state”. But the party promises improvement. D66 “is looking for a correct treatment of a very painful issue for her”.

There will be a code of conduct that D66 politicians and administrators must sign. This will be followed by a party meeting of members in mid-May to discuss the matter. The more than 700 Members who signed an open letter requested it.

Cage still hopes to be able to help the victims: “People can come to me.”
