‘Labour leader should be in parliament’

The politicial leader of the Labour party (PvdA) should be an ordinary MP, not part of the cabinet, says Labour home affairs minister Guusje ter Horst in Intermediair magazine.

Labour leader Wouter Bos is currently finance minister and has been criticised by some supporters for his dual role. Ter Horst said later she was making a general point and did not want to become involved in the discussion over Bos’s leadership.
