New Dutch government coalition installed

A new Dutch cabinet has been installed after the latest election. The new cabinet is a coalition government consisting of the liberal VVD and the social democratic Labour party PvdA. Each party will have ten minister posts. Mark Rutte (VVD), who also was prime minister in the outgoing cabinet, will continue as PM.

The new government is seen as more pro-Europe and pro-austerity than the previous coalition which fell on disagreement over budget cuts.
