“I was lied to,” says politician AD. In a reply to this newspaper, she said: “For a long time it was unclear what the party would look like for the future and GO,” said Van Kooten, who had left the Party for Animals last year. “Henk Krol lied to me. He promised that we would both determine the political line, but it now seems that Otten is pulling the strings. My principles do not mix with his, so I get out.”
Van Kooten left the Party for the Animals a year ago and joined 50PLUS earlier this year. When Krol left there with slamming doors in early May, she founded the party for the future with him.
