The culprit in the Dutch elections is the D66, a liberal party that is both more EU-friendly, pro-immigration and greener than Prime Minister Marc Rutte’s liberal party. D66, with 15 percent, became the second largest party after VVD, with 22 percent of the vote.
Right-wing populist Geert Wilders BV lost something and became the third-largest party, with 11 percent.
D66 is already in place In government, but thanks to success, party leader Sigrid Kaag can claim a heavyweight position, perhaps finance minister or foreign minister. In Parliament, a new European Union eV Federal Party joined the D66. It garnered just over 2 percent, which clears the 0.67 percent barrier applied in the country.
It appears that the Volt has nothing to do with forming the government, which may be difficult to tell. Parliament has a record number of parties, and although right-wing forces have split, they have generally been strengthened.
Three populist right-wing parties are greater than the Left and the Greens.
The new leader of the Social Democratic Party, Lillian Blumen, explained the disappointment in the elections, among other things, by saying that her party was at a disadvantage when the pandemic meant they could not campaign between the people. In square meetings and other gatherings, the Left and the Greens reach out to their constituents.
The only one who Has taken to the streets and squares is the right-wing populist Thierry Baudet. The interest, which was mainly about removing all restrictions, is paying off. His FVD increased their low numbers at the start of the year, but is far from the highest scores in the 2019 local elections.
There will now be more members of Parliament ready to join the European Union, as well as more EU critics. Sigrid Kaag learns how to use her electoral victory to push the government to become more friendly with the European Union. A path that Prime Minister Roth may appreciate. When German Angela Merkel resigned this fall, Mark Rutte, along with Hungary’s Viktor Orban, was at the forefront of government power. It gives a certain weight. Maybe Rota wants to head to Brussels and put more in Brussels too.
