What is CDA about?

CDA is the christian-democratic party of the Netherlands, comparable with CDU in Germany and CD&V in Belgium. Of course, we have our own history, such as being a merger in 1980 from three parties: KVP, ARP and CHU. In that merger, parties decided on what CDA stands for: a party of the people where we find each other in the political conviction.

Now, EU-nationals have a right to vote in the local elections (“no taxation without representation”). Since you have that right, we should also inform you about what CDA stands for. Here it is. Also, check out the people on the list and a special page for students.

One of the core values is stewardship: we ought to care for each other and for our surroundings. This a social element, a financial element  and a physical element (the natural world).

Family values
We believe that people are social beings. We are born in to a family, learn our language, values and culture from our parents and social environment. From that starting point, we develop our individuality.

Social cohesion
Our values have a bearing on how we interpret the word ‘social’. For us, it means social cohesion, the shared reponsibility that people have for each other. No one lives for himself alone.

Responsible government
The government has an important role, which is to serve society. It uses the powers that it has to maintain order, provide public services and shield people that cannot take care of themselves.
