Six months after the election of Geert Wilders, an agreement was reached on Wednesday for a coalition government in the Netherlands. The far-right leader has announced that he will not be prime minister.

An agreement has been reached for a right-wing coalition government in the Netherlands almost six months after the electoral victory of far-right leader Geert Wilders, who will not be prime minister, he announced on Wednesday. “We have an agreement between the negotiators”said Wilders, who gave up the post in March, with some pointing to unease the Islamophobic, anti-EU politician could stir up as the Netherlands’ representative.

The agreement was reached between four parties, Geert Wilders’ PVV, the pro-farmer BBB party, the liberal VVD party and the new anti-corruption party NSC. It was not yet clear who would be the prime minister to lead the right-wing coalition government and replace Mark Rutte, candidate for NATO secretary general. The name of former Education and Interior Minister Ronald Plasterk, who also played a key role in overseeing the early negotiations, is the one that is circulating the most.

The parties must now discuss the agreement with their groups of deputies for final approval. In March, the four parties agreed to opt for a partially technocratic government made up of 50% politicians and 50% people outside politics. The last time the Netherlands had a government this “expert” dates back to 1918.
