Sadet Karabulut (born 28 April 1975) is a Dutch politician and former civil servant and trade unionist of Kurdish descent. As a member of the Socialist Party (Socialistische Partij) she has been an MP since 30 November 2006. From 11 January till 14 April 2011 she was on maternity leave and therefore replaced by Rik Janssen. She focuses on matters of social affairs (poverty reduction, social assistance, purchasing power and child benefit), emancipation and social integration.
Karabulut studied public administration at Erasmus University Rotterdam and was active in the Dutch National Students' Trade Union (LSVb). She is a leading member of the Dutch branch of the Democratic Workers' Clubs Federation (Demokratik Isci Dernekleri Federasyonu, DIDF).
In February 2013 Karabulut stated she would refuse to pledge loyalty to the soon-to-be-King, Dutch Crown Prince Willem Alexander, during his inauguration ceremony. She cited that the procedure was overly ceremonial as she had already pledged allegiance when she was admitted to the House of Representatives. She is also a convinced republican.
