#THENETHERLANDS: PM Rutte Unveils Fourth Cabinet

[world politics news]

Prime Minister Mark Rutte has unveiled his choices for the fourth cabinet he has seated since he was first elected prime minister. 

It includes several new faces, largely from his own party, the VVD (People's Party for Freedom and Democracy) including Senator Eric van der Burg, a former alderman and ex-acting mayor of Amsterdam, who will be the new State Secretary for Asylum and Migration and will succeed Ankie Broekers-Knol.

Opposition Party for Freedom Leader Geert Wilders lost no time in eviscerating Van der Burg, noting on Twitter his 2017 comments about immigrants:

"The man who said: The more asylum seekers the better." (Parool, March 30, 2017) The VVD has gone mad. Pure betrayal."
