  • Description

    Holland's new five-party cabinet, headed by Premier Barend Biesheuvel, was sworn in on Tuesday (6 July) by Queen Juliana at her Huis Ten Bosch Palace.

    Mr. Biesheuvel, 51, a former minister of agriculture, was asked by Queen Juliana on July 22 this year to form a new cabinet -- eight weeks after the previous four-party cabinet had lost its majority in elections for the Second Chamber (the lower house of the Dutch parliament).

    The new cabinet has 16 members, including Mr. W.K.N. (Norbert) Schnelzer who replaces Doctor Joseph Luns as Foreign Minister.
