Cabinet like powerful, unmoving sumo wrestlers: D66
According to Thom de Graaf, the D66 leader of the Eerste Kamer (Senate), his party will only continue to support the coalition if they see more ambition from the Cabinet, BNR reports. He said this in the first major debate before the provincial elections on the TV program Nieuwsuur last night. "The coalition is like two sumo wrestlers facing each other. They generate a lot of power, but there is no movement. And every cabinet and coalition must have the ambition to actually move." De Graaf said. During the debate the VVD and PvdA said that they are on the right track and would like to continue on it together.
