CDA negotiator Klink rejects cooperation with Freedom Party
Christian Democractic CDA coalition negotiatior Ab Klink’s decision to reject any further cooperation with the Freedom Party PVV appears to be final.
In a letter he probably wrote on Monday night he says that “political cooperation with the PVV is no longer a viable option.” "The former health minister writes that "To me personally this really is a final conclusion". His letter was disclosed on the national evening news on Wednesday. It is not yet clear whether the numerous talks and discussions which have since been conducted in the CDA parliamentary party have been able to change Mr Klink’s mind.
The CDA parliamentary party is to meet on Wednesday evening to wrap up its discussions. Afterwards, the party leaders of the CDA, conservative VVD and the PVV will join the leader of the coalition talks, Ivo Opstelten, to discuss the outcome.
