In the Breda Theater Podium Bloos, members can ask questions to the top favorite minister, Sigrid Kaag. Your opponent Ton Visser is only online because he lives and works in China.
Similar meetings will take place on August 22nd and 29th in Nijmegen and Groningen, where party members can get to know the two candidates better. Since the number of available places in connection with the Corona measures is limited, the meetings can also be followed directly online.
