Bukman served as acting Minister of Defence from 6 September 1988 until 24 September 1988 following the resignation Wim van Eekelen. The Cabinet Lubbers II fell on 3 May 1989 and continued to serve in a demissionary capacity. Bukman was elected as a Member of the House of Representatives after the election of 1989, taking office on 14 September 1989. Following the cabinet formation of 1989 Bukman was appointed as State Secretary for Economic Affairs in the Cabinet Lubbers III, taking office on 7 November 1989.
