Knight in the Orde der Nederlandse Leeuw for political dedication to our country.
Pierre has been heavily involved in the politics of the eNation. He was the founder of The Workers' Party, and served two terms as PP, and a further four as VP. During this time the party grew into an established member of the 'Top 5' and was the only voice of the Left in the Netherlands. During this period, he was also the co-founder of the Workers' Party Bread Company, the eNation's first co-operative.
He was elected to Congress for the first time in the May 2010 elections and has since gone onto serve 12 terms in total, making him one of the most recognised members of the eNL Congress of that time. He made his first bid for the Country Presidency in June 2010, when he finished a very creditable 4th, garnering the highest vote for a left-wing candidate in the history of the eState up to that moment.
In August 2010 he founded his own party, Lijst Pierre Delvaux, which he led into a coalition government with the Libertarian Social Democrats, under the leadership of the late Hans Rienveld; Delvaux served as SS of Media and Information. The administration introduced many pioneering progressive policies, in the face of stiff opposition from Iron and Wine. To Delvaux's regret, It was the last government formed under the Congressional model.
Following another, even more, successful CP run, LPD was controversially PTO'd by Konrad Neumann, who, by his own admission, used underhanded means to guide him to victory. The Delvaux View dubbed Neumann 'The Thief of Amsterdam' in response to his actions.
Tiring of the small-minded nature of his opponents, who were dismissive of his anti-kleptocratic ideals, Delvaux withdrew from party politics for a time, serving 2 terms as Ambassador to Belgium. Establishment figure Mael Dunbar famously called his performance in this role "outstanding", and Delvaux received official commendation for his efforts.
Whilst fighting bravely for the eNL army, Delvaux represented the Independent Party in Congress, before becoming the last party president of LSD. Following a period spent in DemNL, during which time he was one of the more active members of Congress, but then returned to his progressive roots, by joining CLN, which was the 4th party he has been PP of.
