Geke van Velzen, a Labor Party member of the municipal council of Amsterdam has compared the proposed government of liberals (VVD) and Christian Democrats (CDA), with outside support of the Freedom Party (PVV), to fascists or Nazis. She called it a ‘brown’ cabinet. Already earlier Evelien van Roemburg of the Green Left party had called the proposed cabinet a ‘brown’ one. Van Velzen was a personal assistant of former Labor Party Leader Wouter Bos. She was heavily criticized by the leader of the Christian Democrats in the Amsterdam municipal council Maurice Limmen.
