Informateur Remkes is going to explore whether “from the content” a fruitful collaboration can come between VVD, D66 and CDA. He will have talks about this outside The Hague next weekend with the leaders of those parties. The discussions will be held at the De Zwaluwenberg estate in Hilversum.
The informant said in a short statement that the exploration can contribute to mutual trust. In an explanatory letter, he writes that the only way to get out of the current impasse is to investigate from the content how the House’s assignment to him can be carried out. According to Remkes, the invitation to VVD, D66 and CDA does not stipulate that “a combination of these parties is already being determined”.
Document from VVD and D66 possible starting point
He sees the general outline of the document that VVD and D66 wrote this summer as a possible starting point for his exploration, although he does point out that this “was written by two political groups from a liberal vision, lacks a financial framework and it is limited in scope.” “,
Remkes also wants to look at how constructive cooperation can be achieved with PvdA, GroenLinks and ChristenUnie.
He called it important to also know how the smaller factions feel about a minority government. He spoke about it earlier today. “Those were good conversations and people have taken a constructive position,” he said.
Last week, the Chamber appointed Remkes as informant. He must investigate whether there can be a minority cabinet. VVD, D66 and CDA together have 72 of the 150 parliamentary seats.
The Zwaluwenberg in Hilversum is used by the Inspector General of the Armed Forces. Negotiators with earlier formations have also withdrawn there.
