Labor Party Candidate for European Elections was Sixth Choice

Minister of Finance and Labor Party leader Wouter Bos has said that the five preferred candidates to lead the party in the European Union elections had all refused to appear on the list. Bos said that he had not voted in these elections for the leading candidate Thijs Berman but for No. 5 on the list René Cuperus, who is a Euro-skeptic. Forty percent of the Labor Party voters opposed the European constitution and Bos felt that their voice should be heard.
