The entire opposition in the House of Representatives is furious because the coalition parties do not want a plenary parliamentary debate on the results of the provincial elections. GroenLinks leader Jesse Klaver had asked for this.
The elections have triggered a political landslide, with a huge victory for the BBB and a loss for the four coalition parties, the leaders of the opposition parties all said.
VVD, D66, CDA and ChristenUnie think it is too early for a debate. The CDA first wants to recover from the “thump” of the enormous loss.
The coalition parties also believe that an interpretation debate about the elections belongs in the provinces, and not in the plenary hall of the House of Representatives. This led to laughter from the opposition benches.
