Following Interior Minister Hanke Bruins Slot's recommendation, an election is to take place in the Netherlands on November 22, Prime Minister Mark Rutte's caretaker government announced Friday, a week after it resigned over disagreement on asylum policy.

The Farmer–Citizen Movement ((nl))Dutch language: ‍BoerBurgerBeweging, under Caroline van der Plas, led Politico polling for the election as of July 1.

Rutte, leader of the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy ((nl))Dutch language: ‍Volkspartij voor Vrijheid en Democratie and in his fourth consecutive term as Prime Minister, handed his resignation to King Willem-Alexander on July 8. He later announced his departure from politics altogether, saying it was a personal decision not influenced by the government's collapse.

The VVD, with the Christian Democratic Appeal ((nl))Dutch language: ‍Christen-Democratisch Appèl's (CDA) support, proposed limiting, according to the Agence France-Presse, the influx of children of refugees in the Netherlands, and keeping refugee families separated for a minimum of two years; the Christian Union ((nl))Dutch language: ‍ChristenUnie and Democrats 66 ((nl))Dutch language: ‍Democraten 66 parties expressed opposition.

In February, the CDA proposed a system distinguishing temporary refugees, who would be granted asylum for one to three years — extendable if they fled a war and it continued for over three years, and permanent refugees.

Applications for asylum in the Netherlands increased by a third in 2022, surpassing 46,000.
