Dutch PM Rutte’s Party Leads e-Exit Polls

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s party won the most seats in Wednesday’s general election, according to exit polls.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s party won the most seats in Wednesday’s general election, according to exit polls.

Center-right People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy Party (VVD) won 31 out of 150 seats, the polls say, losing 10 seats compared to the 2012 election.

Geert Wilders’ far-right, anti-Islam Party for Freedom (PVV), the Christian Democrats and the D66 Party trail with 19 seats each, with all three parties gaining seats.

The polls suggest a high turnout at 81 percent.

PVV appears to have fared poorly against the backdrop of weekly surveys that showed it running neck and neck VVD until a late taper.

Rutte will need the support of at least three other parties to secure the majority needed for a government.

DENK, a party founded in 2015 by Dutch politicians of Turkish origin, won three seats in their first election.
