New Dutch government 208 days after election

Nearly seven months after they voted in an election on 15 March, Dutch voters are to get a new government after the leaders of four parties agreed on a centre-right policy programme, The Guardian reports. The prime minister, Mark Rutte, is expected to present a rocky four-party coalition to his MPs on Monday, 208 days after his liberal VVD party won the March polls.

The negotiators for the VVD, CDA, D66 and ChristenUnie are finalizing their government agreement on Monday morning and will send it to their parties’ factions during the course of the day, according to RTL Nieuws
