Although he was himself a member of the Centre Party (Danish: Mellempartiet), Holstein led a coalition between the National Landowners and the National Liberals. The ministry was dominated by its three National Liberal ministers, C.C. Hall, A.F. Krieger and C.E. Fenger.

As Prime Minister, Holstein rarely put forward his own opinions; his role was so passive that editor Vilhelm Topsøe satirized him as "the topping on the Kransekake".
