eID in the election programme of D66

Thanks to an amendment by Reinder Rustema (of, the concept election programme of the Dutch political party D66 now contains an adapted paragraph about the new (Dutch and European) electronic identity (eID). This is important to every citizen, as the new eID will replace the current identity system (DigID) in the coming years.

The new text is the outcome of research together with Marleen Stikker and Tom Demeyer of Waag and earlier workshops at Waag on the subject. For the exact wording, please turn to the Dutch version of this news item.
