Dutch PM Mark Rutte narrowly survives no-confidence motion

The Netherlands’ interim Prime Minister Mark Rutte has narrowly survived a no-confidence in the country’s parliament over his conduct during negotiations to form a coalition government. He was accused of lying about moves to sideline a troublesome lawmaker. Following his narrow escape, Rutte, 54, said, ’Parliament has given me a serious message and I will try my very best to win back confidence.’

He wasn't a troublesome politician, he is a critical politician that brought to light a massive scandal involving Ruttes goverment screwing over people on benefits for childcare. So this was Rutte trying to screw over a politician that brought him some pain. Omzigt got a massive amount of votes and if his party would be a part of the coalition, he probably would have become a minister, but a note surfaced with the suggestion to sideline Omzigt and Rutte lied about talking about Omzigt.
