Also this year, one minister is missing from the throne: the so-called designated survivor. And again the choice fell on Minister Stef Blok.
He is hiding in a secret place to be able to take over the government in the event of an attack. Who the ‘lucky’ minister is is always kept quiet, but Blok is missing from the Grote Kerk. That happened once before: in 2019 he was also the ‘poor’.
The term designated survivor came into vogue through an American TV series on Netflix of the same name. This inspired D66 MP Joost Sneller to designate such a designated survivor for the Netherlands as well. The House of Representatives agreed with D66, so since 2019 one member of the cabinet has been missing.
