The Fifth Colijn was the cabinet of the Netherlands from 25 July 1939 until 10 August 1939. The cabinet was formed by the political parties Anti-Revolutionary Party (ARP), Christian Historical Union (CHU) and the Liberal State Party (LSP) following the fall of the Fourth Colijn cabinet on 29 June 1939. The right-wing cabinet was a minority government in the House of Representatives. It was the last of five cabinets of Hendrikus Colijn, the Leader of the Anti-Revolutionary Party as Prime Minister. The cabinet was dismissed by Queen Wilhelmina just 2 days after taking office on 27 July 1939.[1][2][3][4][5][6]
