Caretaker Prime Minister Mark Rutte, right, and Labor Party Leader Diederik Samsom, left, smile in front of a picture symbolizing the theme of the new government, "building bridges", during a joint press conference in The Hague, Netherlands, Monday Oct. 29, 2012. The Netherlands is close to getting a new coalition government after lawmakers from the two biggest parties approved a policy deal hammered out by their leaders. Rutte, leader of the pro-free market VVD party, and center-left Labor Party chief Samsom have been negotiating behind closed doors for weeks to resolve policies for their proposed coalition.
