EFR/EenVandaag Election Debate 2023


Who remembers the legendary debate between Mark Rutte and Geert Wilders during the national elections in 2017? You might not know that this debate was actually hosted by EFR. And this year the event is back!

On the 20th of November the leaders of six popular political parties among students will go to battle for your vote in the elections of the chamber of representatives (Tweede Kamer). They will argue about several relevant social matters including migration, climate and economics. Unlike the last few editions, which were hosted in Erasmus Aula, this years' edition will take place in Rotterdam Ahoy from 18:15 to 19:00. This national spectacle will also be broadcasted live on NPO 1.


Dilan Yesilgöz (VVD)
Frans Timmermans (GL/PvdA) 
Geert Wilders (PVV) 
Rob Jetten (D66) 
Pieter Omtzigt (NSC) 
Caroline van der Plas (BBB)

While all televisions in the Netherlands are turned to this political battlefield, you can attend it live in Rotterdam Ahoy! The ticket sale will open on the 25th of October at 15:00.
