This week, the Dutch State Secretary for Justice, Mr. Teeven, has resigned for political reasons. Now that Teeven was the founder of the plan to reform the Dutch games of chance market, the impact of the resignation on the upcoming remote gambling legislation is uncertain. Uncertainty is even more present now that the Netherlands are facing elections next week, influencing the formation of the new Senate in May. The proposed Dutch Remote Gambling Act still has to pass the House of Representatives, after which it has to pass the (new) Senate.
