On Saturday, her party leader will be confirmed during the party’s congress. Ploumen takes over from Lodewijk Asscher, who resigned last week because of his role in the benefits affair.
Ploumen has been around the Binnenhof for a while. For example, she was Minister of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation in Rutte’s second cabinet. Before that she was party chairman of the PvdA.
In 2017 she started working as a Member of Parliament. The PvdA achieved a dramatic result with nine seats during the elections. Ploumen was number 10 on the electoral list, but still entered the Chamber due to preferential votes.
