Jan Paternotte, D66

Paternotte took over the committee chairmanship from Alexander Pechtold in March 2017 as a newly elected Member of Parliament. During that period, he served as chairman of the Dutch editions of the Interparliamentary Kingdom Consultation. Because of his connecting qualities, he was well-liked by his Caribbean colleagues. Paternotte has been the party leader of D66 since last year. In the parliamentary elections of 22 November, he was the number 2 after party leader Rob Jetten.
