netherlands mart rutte government collapse debt talks euro crisis april 23

Prime Minister Mark Rutte arrives at the Royal palace Huis ten Bosch where he will inform Queen Beatrix about the political situation of the government after the collapse of talks on austerity measures, in the Hague, Netherlands, on April 23, 2012. The resignation has been widely expected since the weekend when Rutte acknowledged that a rift with anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders' Freedom Party would likely lead to early elections, otherwise due in May 2015.
