Pieter Omtzigt is back in the political arena
Pieter Omtzigt is back in the House of Representatives after four months of sick leave. When he went on leave, he was still the CDA member for whom a ‘position elsewhere’ had to be sought. He is now the only member of the Omtzigt Group. How is it going with the man who played a major role in the formation for a long time, without sitting at the table? And how does he see the future?
Pieter Omtzigt will address these questions in Nieuwsuur during his first major TV interview since his return.
