MPs will refuse to swear oath of allegiance to new king – Dutch News

February 18, 2013

According to Dutch News:

At least two MPs from the Socialist Party have said they will not swear allegiance to King Willem-Alexander at his investiture in April because they are republicans.

Willem-Alexander will be inaugurated as king in front of all the members of the upper and lower houses of parliament. During the ceremony, all 225 parliamentarians take it turns to say: ‘I swear to maintain your inviolability and the rights of your kingship.’
