Khadija Arib (born October 10, 1960 in Hedami,[1] Morocco) is a Moroccan-Dutch politician and former civil servant, educator and social worker. As a member of the Dutch Labour Party (Partij van de Arbeid) she has been again an MP since March 1, 2007. Previously she was a member of the House of Representatives from 1998 to 2006, focusing on health care issues. Nowadays she focuses on matters of racism, discrimination control, women's abuse, domestic violence and youth care. While in the House of Representatives, she has been fiercely criticized for her dual citizenship and for her part in an advisory commission to the King of Morocco.[2] In 2012 she made an unsuccessful attempt to obtain the Presidency of the House of Representatives.
