Turk to stand for Dutch Labor party leadership in Netherlands
AMSTERDAMNebahat Albayrak, an ethnic Turk, will stand for the election of chairman of the Netherlands’ main opposition, the Social Democratic Labor Party, after the resignation of Job Cohen, daily Hürriyet has reported.
Speaking to news web site Nu.nl, Albayrak, 43, said the minority government had been unable to produce solutions to the country’s problems.
