Joram Jaron van Klaveren (born 23 January 1979) is a Dutch politician. As a member of the Party for Freedom he has been an MP from June 17, 2010 until March 21, 2014. He currently holds this position on is own account after leaving the Party for Freedom. He focuses on matters of desegregation, employment-to-population ratio, egalitarianism and emancipation. Since March 24, 2011 he has also been a member of the States-Provincial of Flevoland.


Van Klaveren was born on January 23, 1979 in Amsterdam. He studied religious studies at VU University Amsterdam and has worked as an educator.

From March 2006 to June 2009 he was a member of the municipal council of Almere on behalf of the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy. In the 2010 general election, he was elected into the House of Representatives on behalf of the Party for Freedom. Beside that, he has also been a member of the States of Flevoland since the 2011 provincial elections.

On March 21, 2014, Van Klaveren announced that he would leave the Party for Freedom, as he no longer agreed with the party's course. Controversial comments on the Moroccan minority in the Netherlands by party leader Geert Wilders after the 2014 local elections played part in this decision. Van Klaveren continued as an independent MP.[1] In May 2014, Joram van Klaveren, together with Louis Bontes and Johan Driessen, founded a new conservative political party called For the Netherlands (VNL).
