The Euro and Dutch Elections: Avoiding Frexit

The Dutch general election is fast approaching and is scheduled to take place on the 15th of March.

The latest polls put the PVV or Freedom Party, led by Geert Wilders, in the lead.

The latest polls place PVV in the lead with 31% of the vote, which is an increase from previous levels.

The Dutch electoral system is a proportional representation system, however, so the PVV’s 31% is still 19% short of the outright majority required to gain power.
