‘CDA has most openly gay politicians’

The Christian Democratic party has ‘by far’ the most publically gay and lesbian MPs and local councillors, according to newspaper Gay Krant.

The claim follows finance minister Jan Kees de Jager’s public statement in the Telegraaf that he has a partner. De Jager is a CDA member.
‘Lots of positive reactions… thank you for that. Indeed it is not an issue, but not a secret either,’ De Jager said later using the microblogging service Twitter.
