Last Saturday, Denk elected and installed a new board, but this new board is not legally valid at all. That says VU professor Marjan Olfers, an expert in association law. Some members also have their doubts about the choice and the course of events surrounding the appointment of the new board. Is a new soap in danger of emerging here at Denk?
The entire process surrounding the appointment of the new board is not legally valid, according to Olfers. At the Denk meeting, only 94 members were present, while 144 had registered. However, ultimately fewer people were allowed to be present because of the corona rules.
The members who were not present were also not allowed to vote, and that is therefore officially not allowed according to Olfers. These members should have voted, according to her this could have been fine online. Just like everyone else did during this corona crisis. The cabinet has laid down in an emergency law how associations can vote remotely on important matters, and Denk has therefore not complied with this emergency law.
“Because the board is not legally valid in this way, any decisions they take are not”
Other criticisms have also surfaced as a result of this weekend. For example, the board would not be diverse enough, while this is one of the most important points for Denk. People say themselves at Think that they have done everything they can, and that they were ultimately forced to go for quality.
“That diversity was sought, but not found. And that in the end quality was chosen, ”says Mangal, who calls it a“ disappointing answer ”. “Because that is exactly the argument I opposed, when the VVD in Amsterdam used it in a discussion about racism in sports and little diversity in sports boards. And now my own party is also using it. ”
And so Denk seems to end up in a new soap again. It seemed that Denk could get ready for some serious campaign time after a turbulent summer. But now it appears that a new board has been elected in a way that is not legally valid.
