From the Flying Dutchman to Piratenpartij, Pirates in The Netherlands are making Waves

Wednesday, 15 March, 2017 - 14:15

The coupling of a proportional representation electoral system and the steadfast campaigning of the Dutch Pirate Party means that there is a very real chance of seeing a Pirate elected to the Dutch Parliament (Tweede Kamer) with a second Pirate being an outside possibility.

#STEMPiratenPartij - With 1 week till polling day, let's support the Dutch Pirates

Mark Chapman's picture

As I mentioned in a blogpost back in November - the Dutch go to the polls on Wednesday of next week (15th March) and we are looking to make sure that the Dutch Pirates (Piratenpartij) make it into the House of Representatives - securing at least 1 seat and hopefully more.

The way in which the Dutch voting system works with Proportional Representation across the country means that you are trying to get your message spread as far and wide across the country as a whole - there is no 'targetting' of very local areas as we have in the UK. It means that a digital social media campaign has the potential to be very effective as you are trying to reach as many people as possible, but requires that people actually follow through and cast a vote for you, rather than just hit 'Like' on Twitter.
