Liberals’ results in Dutch parliamentary elections

On 22 November, the Netherlands held snap parliamentary elections to elect all 150 members of the House of Representatives. 

ALDE Party members D66 and VVD took part in a hard-fought election campaign led respectively by new party leaders Rob Jetten and Dilan Yeşilgöz-Zegerius. 

D66 received 6.2% of the popular vote, ensuring the party nine seats in the next parliamentary term. VVD retained 24 seats in the chamber with 15.2% of the popular vote.  

“Many thanks to all voters who have expressed their confidence in D66. And to all volunteers: what a great campaign we have run together,” said Jetten. 

“I am very proud of our party. The energy among the volunteers, among the members, among all VVD members is incredible. So we will get started with the lessons, to build a Netherlands that we believe in!” said Yeşilgöz-Zegerius. 

Negotiations will now begin to find an agreement for a coalition government.
