Daniël Teunis van der Stoep (born 12 September 1980, Delft) is a Dutch politician. He was elected to the European Parliament for the Party for Freedom at the 2009 election. He resigned as an MEP on 17 August 2011, having caused a car crash when drunken driving, and was replaced by Auke Zijlstra. He was returned to the European Parliament on 14 December 2011, after the Treaty of Lisbon expanded the Parliament by eighteen MEPs. It was initially disputed Patricia van der Kammen should be elected.[1] However, the PVV did not allow him to rejoin their delegation, and now sits as an independent.[2]
