) is the main representative. These parties co-operated in coalition cabinets in which the Christian democrats had always been a partner: so either a centre-left coalition of the Christian democrats and social democrats was ruling or a centre-right coalition of Christian democrats and liberals. In the 1970s, the party system became more volatile: the Christian democratic parties lost seats, while new parties became successful, such as the radical (radicalism (historical)) democrat and progressive (progressivism) liberal D66 (D'66). In the 1994 election (Dutch general election, 1994), the CDA lost its dominant position. A "purple (purple (government))" cabinet was formed by VVD, D66, and PvdA. In the 2002 elections (Dutch general election, 2002), this cabinet lost its majority, because of an increased support for the CDA and the rise of the right LPF (Lijst Pim Fortuyn), a new political party, around Pim Fortuyn, who was assassinated a week before the elections. A short-lived cabinet (First Balkenende cabinet) was formed by CDA, VVD, and LPF, which was led by the CDA leader Jan Peter Balkenende. After the 2003 elections (Dutch general election, 2003), in which the LPF lost most of its seats, a cabinet (Balkenende II) was formed by CDA, VVD, and D66. The cabinet initiated an ambitious programme of reforming the welfare state, the healthcare system (Healthcare in the Netherlands), and immigration policy. In June 2006, the cabinet fell after D66 voted in favour of a motion of no confidence against the Minister of Immigration and Integration, Rita Verdonk, who had instigated an investigation of the asylum procedure of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a VVD MP (Member of Parliament). A caretaker cabinet (Balkenende III) was formed by CDA and VVD, and general elections (Dutch general election, 2006) were held on 22 November 2006. In these elections, the CDA remained the largest party and the Socialist Party (Socialist Party (Netherlands)) made the largest gains. The formation of a new cabinet (2006–07 Dutch cabinet formation) took three months, resulting in a coalition (Netherlands cabinet Balkenende-4) of CDA, PvdA, and ChristianUnion. On 20 February 2010, the cabinet fell when the PvdA refused to prolong the involvement of the Dutch Army in Uruzgan, Afghanistan.
