By dropping her ministerial position, Sigrid Kaag confirmed that many questions about the formation had been raised once again. What then? Next weekend, Rutte (VVD), Hoekstra (CDA) and herself will head to Hilversum with Informateur Remkes to discuss formation there.
“I think it makes sense what Kag did,” Bert Bakker, a former MP for D66, tells Good Morning Holland. Afghanistan is not just a file and something really went wrong. Kaag has an important political responsibility in this matter.” Packer notes that Kaag now literally has more time available to form.” Perhaps because of her departure, there could now be a breakthrough in the formation. It is now less restrictive and therefore steps can be taken from it. In that sense, she can start over with shaping.”
