Mark Rutte (VVD) is the last of the day.

79-year-old Tjeenk Willink, who first held talks with the smaller parties on Thursday, has been instructed to investigate whether sufficient trust exists (or can arise again) between the parties to find a way out of the impasse together.

All parties, except D66 and CDA, have closed the door to Rutte because of his involvement in the Omtzigt memo.

"Mark Rutte has a big problem because so many parties have excluded him," said PvdA leader Lilianne Ploumen on Tuesday.

According to her, it is up to the liberal parties to resolve this.

Jesse Klaver (GroenLinks) also announced that the initiative now lies with Rutte and Kaag.

Rutte has already announced that he will remain as VVD leader.

His party is also behind him.

Without a fourth party, there is only a view of a minority cabinet (VVD, D66, CDA).

The big question is whether Tjeenk Willink can ensure that one of the parties opens the door for Rutte again.

Tjeenk Willink does not want to talk about people now

To do this, he will have to appeal to the group chairmen's sense of responsibility.

"Now you can spend a long time dealing with the problems here in The Hague, but ultimately what matters are the social problems that need to be solved. And right now, people are concerned about when they will get the first injection and young people feel trapped. That is today ", said Tjeenk Willink on Wednesday.

He believes that parties should first find out where they can find each other before making statements about people.

The group chairmen agree on one thing.

The closed management style must be over, so that the House can again do its job better as auditor of the cabinet.

Rutte also announced earlier that he wanted to take the necessary steps for this.

This culture change is therefore one of the most important topics that Tjeenk Willink will discuss.

His morning starts with a conversation with Thierry Baudet (FVD), followed by Jesse Klaver (GL), Lilianne Ploumen (PvdA) and Lilian Marijnissen (SP).

After lunch it is the turn of Geert Wilders (PVV), Wopke Hoekstra (CDA), Sigrid Kaag (D66) and Mark Rutte (VVD).
