Encyclopedia > Leefbaar Rotterdam

Leefbaar Rotterdam (Livable Rotterdam) is a political party in the large Dutch city of Rotterdam. It won the council elections of March 2002 due to the charismatic leadership of Pim Fortuyn. This made it the city's largest political party after 30 years of the Labour Party. Leefbaar Rotterdam started as a spin-off of the national party Leefbaar Nederland but is commonly seen as the local party of the LPF (Lijst Pim Fortuyn), the national party of Pim Fortuyn which was founded just after Pim Fortuyn was fired as "Lijsttrekker" of the Leefbaar Nederland party in spring 2002.

The party consists of a large number of members that are new to politics and were attracted to Fortuyn's dreams of political change. The party attracts attention and criticism for the unpolitical behavior of its members and its unconventional, sometimes right wing vision on immigration and tolerance. This has resulted in numerous splits in the faction since 2002. Nieuw Rechts is an example of this.
