What do the Dutch election results mean for the Netherlands and the EU?
Date created :
In the Netherlands, the general elections saw the centre-right party of Prime Minister Mark Rutte, the VVD, retain the position of largest party in parliament. In second place came the far-right Party for Freedom of Geert Wilders, who campaigned on an anti-immigration, anti-Islam and anti-EU platform. While much of the EU was relieved to see Wilders come second, what do the results mean for the future of the Dutch political landscape? We meet MPs and MEPs in The Hague to see what they think.
