The New Republican Society (NRG) thinks that the House of Representatives must debate on the “exorbitant salary'' of the king. The Society, which wants an elected head of state in the Netherlands, thinks that a net salary of 150,000 euro is enough for King Willem-Alexander.

The NRG wants to submit a citizens' initiative. According to the law, at least 40,000 citizens have to sign the initiative.

The NRG further calls on people, who have the same thoughts, to wear white instead of orange on April 30, the day that Willem-Alexander is inaugurated as king.

Prince Willem-Alexander has known for about a year and a half that he is going to be crowned on April 30 of this year. 3FM DJ Gerard Ekdom says that he heard this directly from the Crown Prince during the “uitblinkers” lunch at Noordeinde Palace, according to a report by the NOS.

“The prince was almost sitting next to me, so I had a very nice talk with him,” Ekdom said in the Coen & Sander Show. “Frankly speaking, I know it already for one and a half years,” Ekdom quotes the prince.

The inauguration on April 30 has caused an unprecedented demand for large television screens. The demand is so high that rental companies in the Netherlands are out of stock. Screens are now arranged from Belgium and Germany, according to a report by AD.
