After the stupidest party EVER won big in this year's Dutch national elections, I figured it would be possible, even easy, to participate in the next elections and even end up with a couple of seats. I realized that spending big on a major campaign would not be an option, so I decided I would start working on it some two years before the next elections and slowly make myself known through the common subconcious, mostly through a website, directed at promoting 'Lijst Baba' and the party's values and ideas.
Unfortunately, the proponent of the party that won big was shot, just before the May elections and the government got disbanded in October, resulting in early elections. Suddenly, I had no time to put my plan to work. I had to come up with an alternative.
Enter the 'Partij van de Toekomst' (Party of the Future). Run by a slightly chaotic, absurdly positive workaholic with more ideas than you can shake a stick at, the Partij van de Toekomst already took part in the May elections and now wants to strike back with a vengeance.
During the previous week, we've been busy collecting autographs from all over the country. A new party is required to collect thirty autographs from all 19 districts in the Netherlands. We made it, just in time. Now, we can finally begin.
