“The Dutch government has collapsed because of a disagreement between coalition parties over asylum policies, Prime Minster Mark Rutte has said.

The four parties were unable to find agreement in crisis talks chaired by Mr Rutte on Friday.

The government was set up a year and a half ago but the parties have been opposed on migration for some time…

Local media reported fresh elections would likely be held in November.”

Analyst Comment: Rutte’s government passed the plan to shut down thousands of Dutch farms and replace them with energy-efficient housing and other green projects. The new law has been aggressively opposed by farmers and citizens across the Netherlands.
