The past few weeks have not been easy for prime minister and CDA party leader Balkenende. The next weeks promise to be worse.
Balkenende had his fourth government blown up beneath him by the PvdA, and the CDA was generally seen as the culpable party. Although he was reconfirmed as party leader with remarkable speed, he was also critcised for that from day one. Besides, one CDA prominent after another is leaving politics.
Balkenende’s position is getting worse and worse.
