On Monday the negotiators for the four parties in the new coalition presented the agreement to their parliamentary factions. All four parties approved the agreement, the VVD being last to do so around midnight. On Tuesday morning, the negotiators met one last time to make any final adjustments. That's now done and the new government agreement is ready to be published.
