Progress report on Dutch coalition talks delayed

first_imgA progress report on forming a coalition government following the March 15 parliamentary election in the Netherlands has been pushed back by another week.Edith Schippers, a center-right politician tasked with exploring possible governing alliances after the vote, said Monday night she needed more time to present her findings. She will report back March 28 at the earliest, instead of this Wednesday.After speaking with the leaders of all 13 parties that won seats in the vote, she continued her exploratory talks with the leaders of four parties, including Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD), the Christian Democrats (CDA), liberal D66 and the center-left GreenLeft. Schippers said the parties’ differences are significant, but she will again invite their leaders for joint talks to explore a possible coalition.While it seems unlikely far-right Party for Freedom (PVV) could join the governing coalition as Rutte, whose party won the most seats in the election, has ruled out working with it, Schippers said she has also invited PVV leader Geert Wilders for talks.
