Early careerEdit

In 2002, Teeven succeeded Pim Fortuyn as Front runner (lijsttrekker) of Livable Netherlands (Leefbaar Nederland). From May 16, 2002 to January 30, 2003, he was the parliamentary group leader of Livable Netherlands in the House of Representatives and also a member of the House of Representatives from July 22, 2002 to May 27, 2003. After he found out that he would not be Front runner in the 2003 elections, he quit the party and returned to his former post of public prosecutor.

In 2006, Teeven announced his return to politics, this time for the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD). For the Dutch general election of 2006, he was 6th on the candidate list for the VVD, and was elected into House of Representatives on November 30, 2006. He was the main spokesperson for justice policy.

For the Dutch general election of 2010 he was 3rd on the candidate list for the VVD. After the cabinet formation of 2010 for the first Rutte cabinet, Teeven became the State Secretary for Security and Justice taking office on October 14, 2010 and resigned the same day as an MP. On November 5, 2012, he continued as State Secretary for Security and Justice in the second Rutte cabinet. Meanwhile he was an MP again from September 20, 2012 to November 5, 2012. [2]
