Party Leader: Crown Prince Should Abandon Plan for Holiday Home in Mozambique

Alexander Pechtold, the faction leader of the D66 left-of-center party, has called on Crown Prince Willem Alexander to discontinue his project of building a holiday home in Mozambique. According to Pechtold, there are too many risks that the project will fail. That would lead to frequent public debate in the Netherlands, while according to the Dutch constitution, the Crown Prince is not allowed to defend himself. Pechtold mentioned that Mozambique is an unstable country. He added that the prime minister should have had the project analyzed better and prevented the crown prince from starting the project.
