Since Wim Kok in the 1990s, no DPM has ever become PM later on. Perhaps a sign of centralization of power in the Dutch deep state.

The Dutch Deputy Prime Minister has become a position shared by multiple politicians since the 2010s. The DPMs are often the leading politicians of the second and third parties that form the coalition government.

Bilderberg connections

So far 5 Dutch DPMs have visited the Bilderberg at least once:

 Bilderberg meetingsDescription
Wopke Hoekstra1Dutch Finance Minister and Deputy Prime Minister
Sigrid Kaag2Dutch diplomat and politician. Although an outspoken feminist, Kaag vocally opposed a public trial regarding dozen of reports of sexual abuse within her own party. A successful and career-diplomat, named by Geert Wilders as the "namesake of a runway at Schiphol Airport", she has attended two Bilderberg meetings.
Wim Kok2Dutch Minister of State, Dutch PM, Bilderberg, sued for war crimes in Yugoslavia where he and Jozias van Aartsen blamed "the wind" for missing targets by thousands of meters, killing dozens. Court found NATO and the Dutch Air Force and not the wind guilty, as NATO "used wrong legal basis".
Roelof Nelissen1Dutch politician who attended the 1979 Bilderberg
Gerrit Zalm1Dutch politician. Shell. Attended the Bilderberg in 2014, personally prosecuted for money laundering at ABN AMRO Bank.
