the hague - There are no meters yet, but centimeters. That was the conclusion of D66 leader Alexander Pechtold about the result of two days, so-called informal consultation during the formation.
'These are solid subjects,' said Pechtold. 'Everything has been discussed and very intensive. The differences are large. These are spicy conversations. '
CDA foreman Sybrand Buma thought it was a good time to sit in another area. 'We've been able to make two long days. Much needs to be discussed. And we are still busy. It is a big project with four parties and that is being done very carefully. '
D66, CDA and the negotiators of VVD and ChristenUnie gathered Monday and Tuesday in a monumental building in The Hague to be away from the Binnenhof. The debate will be resumed on Friday.
