Libertas Netherlands (Dutch: Libertas Nederland) is a political party in the Netherlands. It contended the 2009 European Parliament elections under a common banner with Libertas Party Limited, the organization founded by Declan Ganley.

History[edit]

Ganleys registration with the Dutch Electoral Council (Kiesraad) to allow Libertas Nederland to run in the 2009 elections in the Netherlands[3] was successful.[2]

On 18 March 2009, Nederland Transparant proclaimed their support for Libertas. Nederland Transparent did not field their own candidates for the European Parliament election, 2009 because of a dispute with the Dutch government over whether they were the successor to, or the same party as Europa Transparent after their merger on January 1 2008.[4] However, during a press conference on 18 March 2009 Ganley announced Alexander Brom, one of Nederland Transparant's members and former candidates, as the president of Libertas Nederland.[1]

2009 European Parliament elections[edit]

Libertas Nederlands presented an electoral list with 24 candidates (see List of Libertas list candidates at the 2009 European Parliament elections) but could not gain any mandate.
