A refuse officer is an official who refuses
The term refuse official was created in 2007 when the news came that an official of the marital status refused to complete a marriage between two same-sex partners. This was included in the coalition agreement and encountered much opposition from various organizations and large cities. A number of cities have rejected the relevant passage from the Regeerakoord.
