Minister Accused of Promoting Herself at Government Expense

Minister of Agriculture Gerda Verburg (Christian Democrat) has come under heavy criticism from most parties in Parliament for distributing a glossy magazine with her own picture on the cover, describing the activities of her ministry. Eight hundred thirty thousand copies of the magazine have been distributed at the cost of 400,000 Euro, paid by the ministry. The minister is a part of a government which has rendered its resignation and new elections are due to take place in June.
