The proposal, known as the Voorstel der Negenmannen ("proposition of the nine men"), did not pass through the Tweede Kamer, the second chamber of the Dutch parliament.

In 1849, Thorbecke was elected chairman of the Tweede Kamer and minister of internal affairs, thereby de facto becoming the first Prime Minister of the Netherlands.

Vorige week nog wees de kunstcommissie van de Kamer het verzoek van de LPF af om een zaal naar de vermoorde politicus te mogen vernoemen, onder meer omdat Fortuyn geen Kamerlid is geweest.
De Fortuyn-zaal komt waarschijnlijk in het nieuwe deel van de Tweede Kamer, aan de overkant van het Plein.
Naast het argument dat Fortuyn geen Kamerlid is geweest, speelde ook een rol dat de LPF nog maar kort in het parlement vertegenwoordigd is.

And that is what is really disturbing, since the Dutch are after all contributing troops down here, to patrol and to possibly be injured or killed, as well; you would hope, or even assume, that they would routinely get the intelligence information they need.
As it happens, the Tweede Kamer has now asked Premier Balkenende to have his cabinet review the Dutch mission in Iraq, the NRC reports in this accompanying article.
