Netherlands forms ultra-sovereign Parliament but no majority

parliament Holland opened the new legislature this Wednesday. far rightAlthough the power that received the most votes in the elections held two weeks ago is still far from gaining the majority its leader needs, Geert Wilders to become prime minister. Call Freedom Party (PVV) de Wilders holds 37 of the 150 seats in the Hague Assembly. But so far only the minority and populists have declared support Farmers Party (BBB), with six seats.

The first two conservative formations Wilders tested were the outgoing prime minister’s liberals Mark Rutte and new centrist formation NSC, are not willing to support him with 24 and 20 seats respectively. Rutte, who announced his retirement last summer and accelerated his call for early elections, handed over the reins of his party to the Minister of Justice. Dilan Yeşilgöz. This policy is the daughter of refugees but Hard line against immigration, refused to enter government with Wilders, although he could support the minority administration headed by the so-called “Dutch Trump”. The NSC does not currently support any option that would give Wilders the keys to power.

In the elections of November 22, the far right rose as the first force despite all the difficulties, followed by the bloc between the social democrats and the greens of the former vice president of the European Commission. Frans Timmermans. Therefore, Wilders’ first task is to form a government. His party had experience as Rutte’s managing partner in The Hague during his first two years in power. Following the collapse of the coalition, there was a close rivalry, both personal and political, between the far-right leader and the liberal prime minister, who, in common with all his subsequent rulers, vetoed him.

Political fragmentation complicates search for allies

The fact that Wilders does not yet have the partners he needs in The Hague comes as little surprise. It is remembered that Rutte needed so far: 271 days It received the support it needed in its last parliament due to the multi-part structure of the Dutch parliament, which has a total of 14 parties for 150 seats in the parliament. Rutte’s desire to succeed the Norwegian pilot is known Jens Stoltenberg as general secretary NATObut for now he is determined to remain in office as long as necessary until the next government is formed.

The search for a partner got off to a bad start when the first mediator between the potential allies from Wilders’ far-right party resigned before he was even officially in office amid accusations of corruption. The role of mediator has now passed to social democrat Ronald Plasterk, who has requested time and prudence to investigate the parties.

Islamophobia declared

Wilders, 60, is an established leader. European far-right family. He has been seeking the opportunity to seize power for more than 20 years, while also chasing extreme votes with positions that have led to him being accused of inciting violence.

His party is one man and includes more than controversial and unconstitutional elements such as closing mosques and banning the Quran. But since his unexpected victory, he has smoothed out the programmatic rough edges to some extent. Despite his declared Islamophobia, he no longer sees his plans for the Muslim community as goals of his future government. What distinguishes the leader from the centrist MGK is precisely the possible unconstitutionality of some of his statements. Pieter Omtzigtjoining a government alliance with a far-right leader.
