- 67 out of 219 provincial deputies from the Netherlands’ ruling Labor and liberal parties have failed to win reelection.
- As a result, the two are expected to lose their majority in the Senate when provincial deputies elect a new upper chamber in May.
- The liberal Democrats have gone up from 42 to 67 provincial seats. They also became the largest party in the capital, Amsterdam.
- The nationalist Freedom Party did well in country’s second city, Rotterdam, as well as the southern province of Limburg. It placed fifth overall, behind the far-left Socialists but ahead of Labor.
