About our 2023 Dutch General Election news

Latest news on the early general elections in the Netherlands, which were held on 22 November 2023, to elect members of the House of Representatives. This snap election was called following the collapse of the fourth Rutte cabinet on July 7, 2023, due to disagreements on immigration policy, particularly a proposed limitation on family reunification for refugees. Mark Rutte, the incumbent Prime Minister, announced he would not lead his party, the VVD, into the election and would retire from politics.

The elections were conducted using open list proportional representation, with the D'Hondt method determining the number of seats per list. A number of parties have announced their participation, including the VVD, Democrats 66 (D66), GroenLinks–PvdA, Party for Freedom (PVV), Christian Democratic Appeal (CDA), Socialist Party (SP), Forum for Democracy (FvD), Party for the Animals (PvdD), Christian Union (CU), Volt Netherlands, JA21, Reformed Political Party (SGP), DENK, 50PLUS, Farmer–Citizen Movement (BBB), and BIJ1.

In a political upset, Geert Wilders' PVV won in a landslide, winning 37 seats with 23.49% of the vote.

The next Dutch election is scheduled for March 2028.
