The Base (Dutch: De Basis), formerly known as the Basic Income Party (Dutch: Basisinkomen Partij, BIP), is a minor political party in the Netherlands, which advocates for the implementation of a universal basic income.[4] The party registered with the electoral council on 9 December 2013.[5]

History[edit]

The Basic Income Party was founded on 4 October 2013.[3] In 2014, the party participated in the municipal elections in Amsterdam, Bergen, Deventer and Utrecht.[6][7][8][9] It also planned to participate in Almere and Groningen, but pulled back two months before the election due to a lack of preparation time.[10][11] The party did not win any seats.[12]

In 2017, the party participated in the general election as part of a combined list – known as the "umbrella list"[13] – with the Party for Human and Spirit, the Party for Children's Interests and the political movement Peace & Justice.[3][4] It only participated in the seventh and eighth electoral districts (Utrecht and Arnhem).[14] The list did not receive enough votes for a seat in the House of Representatives.[15]

In 2018, the party took part in the municipal elections once again. This time it only participated in the municipality of Amsterdam. Despite an initiative to join forces with other minor parties, the Basic Income Party failed to win a seat in the municipal council.[16][17]

In July 2020, Citizen Interests Netherlands (Dutch: Burger Belangen Nederland) merged into the party, and the name was changed to De Basis.[18] The party intends to take part in the next general election, scheduled for 17 March 2021.[1]
