Small fry 9/4

The formation discussions are continuing slowly. Nobody expects to have anything to say for the next few weeks, and at the request of Klaver (GL) Fridays are non-negotiation days so he can spend time with his small children. I’m not sure how much the other parties like this, but they have agreed to it. Everybody is in let’s-take-this-easy mode.

Meanwhile, some snippets that might be of interest:

Finally, as a bonus, a photo of all party leaders and the speaker of parliament. I was thinking of running a portrait gallery, but it turns out there’s a more-or-less official photo. Click to enlarge.

From left to right: Pechtold (D66), Buma (CDA), Wilders (PVV), Krol (50Plus), speaker Arib (PvdA), Van der Staaij (SGP), Rutte (VVD), Thieme (PvdD), Klaver (GL), Kuzu (DENK), Baudet (FvD), Roemer (SP), Segers (CU), Asscher (PvdA).

This is the political blog of Peter-Paul Koch, mobile platform strategist, consultant, and trainer, in Amsterdam. It’s a hobby blog where he follows Dutch politics for the benefit of those twelve foreigners that are interested in such matters, as well as his Dutch readers.
