GroenLinks largest in Groningen municipal elections

The second largest party is the PvdA with six chairs, followed by D66 (five chairs) and the SP (also five). For D66 it was evening of loss, because the party in the previous municipal elections in Groningen and Haren became the largest.

Low attendance

45 seats could be divided into Groningen. The participation was 44.1 percent, much lower than four years ago in Groningen (54.5 percent), in Haren (75.5 percent) and Ten Boer (64.4 percent).

In the municipal elections in Haarlemmermeer, Haarlemmerliede and Spaarnwoude, the VVD won seven seats, making the largest party. This is still a preliminary result. 39 seats could be divided into Haarlemmermeer.

Seven seats

At the beginning of this night, it was clear that the CDA would become the largest party in the new communities of Noardeast-Fryslân (Friesland) and Beekdaelen (Limburg). In both municipal councils, this party receives seven seats.

725,000 voters

In today's elections, a total of 725,000 voters can vote. Of these, 190,000 resided in Groningen, Haren and Ten Boer. These will be merged on January 1. The participation was more than 44 percent, considerably less than in the last regular advisory options.

In addition, today it was voted in Haarlemmermeer (with Haarlemmerliede and Spaarnwoude), with 118,380 voters. At Hoeksche Waard (Binnenmaas, Cromstrijen, Korendijk, Strijen, Oud-Beijerland) are 69,227 voters.
