Yesterday, 196 days after the House elections, there should finally have been clarity on the composition. But the day has begun with nine parties visit of detective Johan Remix and ends with VVD, CDA, and D66 who withdrew for internal deliberations, and ended as he had begun; There is no clarity as to whether negotiations can take place now on the new government.
The informant provided the three parties with a “concrete line of thought,” according to VVD leader Mark Rutte. The evening’s VVD and CDA decided if they could agree with this, but the D66 was need more time.
None of those involved wanted to make what was involved in the remix’s line of thought official. After the VVD meeting, Rutte spoke to the press, but declined to comment on the content. However, it is clear that a strange alternative such as the Cabinet outside Parliament, a proposal by Remix, will not materialize. Also a minority coalition of VVD, D66 and CDA . is excluded.
So the formation goes back to what was just dropped: a “normal” majority government. The only question is which variable. The D66 supports negotiating a six-party cabinet with VVD, D66, CDA, PvdA, GroenLinks and ChristenUnie. The VVD and CDA want to continue the current four-party coalition. As far as theirs is concerned, PvdA and GroenLinks are not welcome at the formation table.
Grape acid D66
The fact that the D66 and the other parties have yet to decide indicates that Remkes suggested restarting the current department. After all, that could mean a major concession for the D66.
Kaag previously ruled out continuing the current alliance, as D66 and ChristenUnie are far from medically ethical. The D66 believes a more advanced cabinet can also be configured with PvdA and GroenLinks.
