Netherlands won’t vote on the treaty before February 24
23:05, 13 February 2017

The agreement between the European Union and Ukraine will be delayed. This was reported by Reuters agency referring to the parliamentary spokeswoman.

As the publication says, Dutch parliament is not going to approve the treaty until after the Netherlands holds national elections on March 15 at the earliest. This means parliament cannot vote on the treaty before going into recess on February 24.

It is noteworthy that election to Dutch parliament will be held in mid-March. The right-wing Party for Freedom holds a leading position. The party of the current Prime Minister Mark Rutte - People's Party for Freedom and Democracy - may move to second place, and its coalition partners - Labour Party - are likely to be third.

As it was reported earlier, Dutch government has started preparing for the ratification of the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the European Union.
