Minister Verdonk of Alien Affairs and Integration today publicly scolded a member of parliament for having a dual nationality, and therefor two passports.

According to Verdonk, the member of parliament should set an example by giving up her other nationality.

The current government seems to have lost sight of the Trias Politica. The prime minister and his cabinet must remember that they are "just" an executive force, and that are expected to implement the policy that is set by Parliament. Not the other way around.
