Voters in the Netherlands overwhelmingly rejected a partnership treaty between the European Union and Ukraine. RT’s Peter Oliver asks Dutch voters their opinions, and gives a history of the rejected deal. Then, RT America’s Manila Chan is joined by Nation Magazine writer James Carden after his visit to Ukraine.
Translated from Dutch NOS TV:
Within the PvdA a major conflict threatens on the outcome of the referendum about [the proposed treaty between the European Union and] Ukraine. PvdA MP and candidate for party leader Monasch would support a no-confidence motion by the opposition against their own PvdA-VVD government. That has not yet occurred in recent parliamentary history.
Monasch wants the Netherlands to not sign the cooperation agreement with Ukraine, because in April a majority voted against the EU’s association agreement with Russia’s neighbour country. “If the government does not listen to this, I am sorry I have to support a vote of no confidence,” Monasch tells the NOS.
The PvdA officially supports [VVD] Prime Minister Rutte. He wants the European Union to reinforce ties with the country and has been searching for months for a solution to still put a Dutch signature under the EU treaty. On Monday Rutte wrote in a letter to parliament there is until mid-December time for a solution.
The MP Monasch, who hopes to become Labour leader, calls upon his MPs to block this plan by Rutte. The PvdA has repeatedly said in spring to respect the outcome of the consultative referendum. He does not understand that the Labour party gives the prime minister even more time. “The PvdA must not support the line of Rutte. A deal is a deal,” said Monasch.
Political reporter Ron Fresen says that Monasch puts his finger on a sore spot in the Labour government coalition party. “It will stir up divisions. Because, how do you explain that as a party you first say: We respect the outcome, and then do something else. Monasch increases the pressure on his party.”
