Home affairs minister Kajsa Ollongren is returning to work on Tuesday after a long period of sick leave.

Ollongren handed over her duties to three other ministers at the beginning of November last year while she took time off for an operation on her sinuses. Complications led the minister to delay her return.

Ollongren will resume her normal workload, although responsibility for government IT projects will remain with her deputy Raymond Knops. Social affairs minister Wouter Koolmees will also stay in the role of deputy prime minister on behalf of the Liberal democratic party D66.
