House of Cards NL

A little break from my Swedish series to pay attention to some current affairs. A couple of weeks ago, on Donald Trumps Inauguration Day, I posted a photo of the U.S. Capitol, titled House of Cards. Today, on the day of the Dutch General Elections, I present the Dutch version for this photo, showing the Binnenhof and the Ridderzaal, the political heart of the country in The Hague.

The Dutch General Elections are held to elect all 150 members of the House of Representatives (Tweede Kamer). The Conservative Liberal party VVD, led by incumbent Prime Minister Mark Rutte, is leading the polls (despite a loss of about 15 seats), but four other parties, the right winged-nationalist PVV, Christian-Democratic CDA, GreenLeft and Progressive Liberal D66 are all very closely behind, some of them even within the margin of error, so its probably going to be a tight race.
