Laurence Stassen (born 8 February 1971, Sittard) is a Dutch politician on behalf of the Party for Freedom (PVV) and a former freelance television presenter of the regional broadcasting TV Limburg. There she presented the program sponsored Limburg leeft (translated: Limburg lives) about residency and life in Limburg.[1]

For the European Parliament elections in 2009 Stassen was ranked as the fourth candidate for the PVV. In itself an electable position - the PVV won four seats - but the lower-ranking party leader Geert Wilders was elected by preference votes. Wilders however, had already declared to remain in the House of Representatives of the Netherlands, so Stassen could take office as a Member of the European Parliament on July 14, 2009.

On December 10, 2010 it was announced that the 2011 provincial elections Stassen would run for PVV party leader in the province of Limburg. She was elected and retained her membership of the European Parliament.[2][3][4]

Laurence Stassen is married with two children. She is living in Echt. She is committed to children with cancer and she is active in at least two foundations.
