Mariëtte Hamer (PvdA) becomes new informer

Ser-chairman Mariëtte Hamer will almost certainly be appointed new informer tomorrow. Initiates confirm that the former group chairman of the PvdA must continue to help the cabinet formation.

Tomorrow, the House of Representatives will be debating the final report of the current informer, Herman Tjeenk Willink, also of the PvdA. It noted that there were sufficient opportunities for further discussions on the formation of a majority cabinet.

The 62-year-old Hamer is the chairman of the Socio-Economic Council, in which employers, trade unions and the government work together. It is one of the most important advisory bodies of the Cabinet.

Trust in Rutte

Tomorrows debate will be a lot about confidence in VVD leader Mark Rutte. This is for discussion after it appeared that he had spoken in the discussions with the explorers about another position for CDA member Pieter Ottzigt.

Yesterday Rutte acknowledged again at Nieuwsuur that he has made mistakes, but said that he will not suddenly do all sorts of things completely different. Tomorrow it will be necessary to see whether there is sufficient confidence in potential coalition partners such as CDA, D66, PvdA and GroenLinks to discuss a new cabinet with Rutte.
