Pieter Omtzigt, number two of the CDA, received the support of 342,472 voters in the parliamentary elections last week. With that he alone won almost five seats for his party. PVV’er Sietse Fritsma received the smallest number of all prospective MPs with 264 votes. Henk Krol (Lijst Henk Krol) saw his support disappear.
It was already certain that Krol would leave the Lower House. His newest party, the Henk Krol List, did not get a seat in last week’s elections. Now that the Electoral Council has determined the final result, it is clear that Krol himself received 8,043 votes. Four years ago, when he was 50PLUS leader, 233,179 people voted for him.
Omtzigt only has to put up with six candidates, all of them party leaders. They got even more votes. One of them is CDA party leader Wopke Hoekstra, who received 437,240 votes.
Forum for Democracy, just like the CDA, also had two major votes. Party leader Thierry Baudet has received 245,323 votes, number two Wybren van Haga 241,193. That is a difference of 4,130 votes.
In addition, there were a few candidates who, like Fritsma, only received a few hundred votes, but still end up in the Chamber. For example, 430 people voted for Pepijn van Houwelingen, number 8 on the Forum for Democracy list. PVV member Harm Beertema, Member of Parliament since 2010, received 456 votes, VVD member Pim van Strien 463 votes and PVV member Tony van Dijck 466 votes.
