Deputy Prime Minister of the Netherlands official deputy of the head of government of the Netherlands

The Deputy Prime Minister of the Netherlands is the official deputy of the Prime Minister of the Netherlands, who is the head of government of the Netherlands. In the absence of the Prime Minister of the Netherlands the Deputy Prime Minister takes over his functions, such as chairing the Cabinet of the Netherlands and the Council of Ministers of the Netherlands. Conventionally, all of the junior partners in the coalition get one deputy, and the deputies are ranked according to the size of their respective parties. The incumbent Deputy Prime Ministers are Hugo de Jonge, Kajsa Ollongren and Carola Schouten.

In the Netherlands the Ministers without portfolio are Dutch ministers that does not head a specific ministry, but assumes the same power and responsibilities as a minister that does. The minister is responsible for a specific part of another minister's policy field. In that sense, a minister without portfolio is comparable to a State Secretary (staatssecretaris) a junior minister in Dutch politics, who also falls under another ministry and is responsible for a specific part of that minister's policy field. However, one distinct difference is that a minister without portfolio is a member of the Council of Ministers and can vote in it, whereas a state secretary is not. The minister for development cooperation has always been a minister without portfolio.
