The gov't of Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has resigned over a scandal involving child benefit payments.
- The decision will not have an impact on the general election, scheduled to be held by 17 March.
- In the interim, the Rutte gov't will remain in place as a caretaker administration. As such, while not pursuing any new policies it will be able to continue to react to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Based on current opinion polls, Rutte and his centre-right VVD would be well placed to lead a new gov't. The gov'ts handling of the COVID-19 pandemic has seen support for the VVD reach multi-year highs. This in turn could see Rutte seek to form a gov't with just one other party following the election, as opposed to the unwieldy four-party gov't in place since the last election.
