JOVD, ROOD & SPIL debate
On Monday the 3rd of december, parliament members Sven Koopmans from VVD and Sadet Karabulut from SP debated about the topic of interventionism in the Middle East. The youth parties of VVD and SP, JOVD and ROOD, took initiative for this political evening. Sadet Karabulut opined that the Netherlands should withdraw from intervening in the region. Her opponent Koopmans defended the current policy of our country participating in the coalition of the West which interferes in the Middle East. The debate was fiery and powerful; the fact that visitors of the debate were also allowed to ask questions contributed to this. Many people attended the evening in Leiden and the commission of domestic affairs was very happy with the turnout of the debate!
