According to Baaghi TV reports, the entire cabinet, including the Prime Minister of the Netherlands, has resigned.
The Dutch cabinet and prime minister have resigned over allegations of fraud and corruption in child welfare payments. Prime Minister Mark Rutte and his entire cabinet resigned on Friday, taking political responsibility for corruption. The investigation revealed that the guardians in this case were wrongly accused of fraud.
Speaking on behalf of the country on television, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said he had informed King William Alexander of the Netherlands of his decision and promised that his government would inform the affected parents as soon as possible. Rutte added, will continue to work to compensate and fight the corona virus. “We all believe that if the whole system has failed, we should all take responsibility, and we have come to the conclusion that I have offered the resignation of the whole cabinet to the king”.
“Mistakes have been made at every level, resulting in injustice for thousands of families. Innocent people have been convicted, and their lives have been ruined,” Mr. Rutte told a news conference “responsibility is accepted “.
The Dutch prime minister said the report, which called for the cabinet to be dissolved, was “tough as nails”, but “fair”.
Following Rutte’s resignation, his decade-long supremacy came to an end. However, the Rutte government will take over until a new government is formed after the March 17 election in the Netherlands. Significantly, Mark Rutte’s party will run in the next election, and if successful, Rutte could become prime minister again in the next government.
Rutte is serving his third term as prime minister and has led the Netherlands since 2010. If his party does get a majority in the next election, he could become prime minister for a fourth term.
