PvdA leader Lodewijk Asscher only wants to participate in the next cabinet if GroenLinks, the SP or both are also in this coalition. Asscher told kup after the presentation of the draft election program at an MBO in Heerenveen.

“Preferably not with the VVD at all, but when I look at the polls now, we have to wait and see.” Asscher said the PvdA learned its lesson by referring to the VVD’s tenure in the Rutte II cabinet which, according to the kup, resulted in a major election defeat for the PvdA.

Asscher said he could best realize the party’s ideas with allies.
