Magdalene Klassen (born 19 October 1967) is a Brunanter politician for A Better Brunant, previously with the Green Party. She was Minister of Industry and Agriculture in the Helms Government. She is a member of the House of Representatives for Sint-Anders Parish.


Klassen was born to Brunanter immigrants in Hurbanova, Lovia. She went to the King Arthur II School and King Arthur I College. She worked at a department store before moving to Brunant in 1982. In 1984, she married Joseph Stelman and they have two children, Martha and Joseph Jr.

Political careerEdit

Klassen joined the Green Party in 1988 and has proven influential in its growth and importance. She was elected to the House of Representatives in 1998 and was a senator between 2009 and 2013, representing Sint-Anders Parish. Since 2013, she has been a member of the House of Representatives again. She was appointed the Minister of Industry and Agriculture in the Helms Government from 2009-2013. As a minister, she has banned all cigarette manufacturing in the country following a ten year push started by former President Marta Henneman and Ines Michels. Klassen and Sofia Andersen have an intense rivalry, at least according to the media, but in recent years, both have downplayed it.

As soon as the 2017 Green Party corruption scandal broke out, Klassen immediately moved to distance herself from Peter Wostor and the supposedly involved politicians. She was one of the first in the party to demand Wostor resign, and on 18 March left the party to join A Better Brunant, becoming the most senior defection from the party. Following the 2017 general election, Klassen was elected to congress as ABB's third representative.
