Exit poll: Geert Wilders' PVV expected to become largest party in the Netherlands

An exit poll suggests that Geert Wilders’ PVV will become the largest party in the Netherlands, winning 35 out of 150 seats in Wednesday’s general election.

The Ipsos poll, commissioned by Dutch public broadcaster NOS, shows the far-right PVV more than doubling the 17 seats it won in March 2021.

The left-wing GroenLinks-PvdA alliance, led by Frans Timmermans, is predicted to gain 26 seats, making it the second-largest group in the Lower House. The liberal VVD party gets 23 seats, while the new NSC party gets 20 seats. The Lower House has a total of 150 seats. 

PVV may struggle to form a coalition, and no single party has enough seats to govern alone.
