Coalition Negotiations


Looks like the CDA, PvdA and the CU are going to be talking to see if they can form a coalition.

Wouter Bos of the Labour Party (PvdA) states that there will need to be changes in the Christian Democrats way before a government can be formed. Discussions and concessions will need to be made in the health industry, the difference between rich and poor and the immigration and asylum seekers policy.

If the coalition can be formed remains to be seen. He states the differences with the Christian Union also remain huge. Subjects such as homo marriage, abortion and euthanasia. Bos states the Dutch legislation in these areas were a big achievement.

Andre Rouvoet of the Christian Union is pleased that all parties involved want to negotiate. That means to him that problem areas may be solved among them. (RTL)


Though I really like Andre Rouvoet and he is great to have on your side in a debate because of his abilities, I find it scary that any of the laws fought for would be turned back in any way. Laws concerning our own rights over our bodies such as abortion, our choice of when and how we wish to die when we are terminally sick and homo marriages.

  1. I think I’ve said already here what my oinion on coalitions is. In some cases they might prove to be a fraud to the electors, what with the Right convening with the Left, etc, etc.

    I don’t think, however, that any of the laws already approved would be superseded or changed because that would be the death of the Party which approved them.
