He was the last prime minister to lead a pure liberal cabinet. However, the cabinet held only a minority in parliament and depended on the support of the social democrats.
One of his major achievements was keeping the Netherlands out of the First World War.
He also introduced universal suffrage in the Netherlands. Because of this, the social democrats and the Algemeene Bond van RK-kiesverenigingen, a Catholic party, won the 1918 elections. The Catholic Charles Ruijs de Beerenbrouck took Cort van der Linden's place as Prime minister.
