AMSTERDAM: Egyptian-born political activist Katrina Ramzy told Youm7 she applied on Wednesday to run in the Dutch parliamentary elections as a representative of the Christian Democratic Union.

Ramzy said she decided to run after working in the European and Dutch parliaments, during which she discussed many political issues in the world, particularly Egyptian.

She said she is the first Egyptian woman who has met with high-ranking officials in the European parliament to clarify what happened in Egypt during the events of June 30, showing them videos that prove June 30 was “an Egyptian popular revolution.”

Ramzy said her electoral program includes fighting racism against foreigners in Netherlands, which is the most important issue.

She also said that the most prominent points in her platform are caring for families, the labor market, the environment, education and equality.
