Election Netherlands

This morning, I was surprised by the results of the election in the Netherlands. Two facts were particularly striking to me.

  • The Social Democracts (PVdA) fell from 24.8% in 2012 to 5.7% vote share.
  • The largest party (Liberals, VVD) won only 21.3% vote share.

I conducted a ParlGov analysis in R to get broader understanding about these patterns.
