VVD, CDA, D66 & GroenLinks agree to continue coalition negotiations
The VVD, CDA, D66 and GroenLinks want to explore further whether they will be able to form a cabinet together, the party leaders announced after meeting together with coalition scout Edith Schippers for the first time. The party leaders are willing to continue talking, but also stressed that there are major differences between the parties, NOS reports.
Schippers is expected to publish a report with the coalition possibilities next week and then the Tweede Kamer, the lower house of parliament, will debate it. It is expected that an informer, which will continue the coalition negotiations, will be appointed soon thereafter.
