Dutch vote leaves coalition facing uncertain future

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte casts his vote on March 18, 2015 in the provincial elections in The HagueDutch voters punished premier Mark Rutte’s ruling coalition in provincial elections on Wednesday, exit polls said, leaving the Liberal-Labour government facing an uncertain future and scrambling for partners to pass reforms in the Senate. The coalition of Rutte’s Liberal VVD and the PvdA Labour party was predicted to lose four and six seats respectively, shattering their previously fragile majority that relied on the progressive D66 and two small Christian parties to pass bills in the 75-seat Senate. “This is a problem for the coalition,” said Paul Scheffer, European studies professor at Amsterdam and Tilburg Universities. “It’s going to be very tricky finding a sixth party willing to support the ruling coalition in the Senate,” he told AFP.
