Okay.. I will lay off the old boy Ronald Plasterk until his heart gets better
Minister of Home Affairs and Kingdom Relations Ronald Plasterk (59) will be undergoing heart surgery next week. He immediately stopped working yesterday, Wednesday.
Minister of Housing and the Nation Government Sector Stef Blok will replace Plasterk the entire summer. The replacement by Blok went into effect Wednesday. Prime Minister Mark Rutte has shared well-wishes to his colleague in the Council of Ministers.
Plasterk visited Bonaire and Curaçao earlier this month. At this stage it is too early to say whether the Minister will be able to attend the annual Kingdom Conference in St. Maarten on August 9.
