Final opinion poll results: Green Party and Labor in the lead

Final opinion polls in the Netherlands confirm that the Labor-Green Party coalition led by Frans Timmermans has advanced over the far right led by Geert Wilders in the European elections. In line with what was indicated by the first opinion polls released immediately after the close of the polls, the pro-European coalition will lead with eight seats, compared to seven seats for the Freedom Party. However, for the anti-Islam and Eurosceptic leader, this is a clear victory compared to the only seat he gained in the previous European elections and which he then lost after his only MEP moved to another party. Voter turnout, according to estimates issued by Ipsos, was 47%, compared to 42% five years ago. The match remains open and the result will only be understood on Sunday evening, with the real data from the ballot of all 27 members. According to final exit polls, the Labour-Greens list will lose one seat overall compared to the current nine, slowing the expected sovereign wave on the eve of the vote.

Behind the main rivals, outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte's right-wing liberals, led by Dylan Jeselgoz, are four seats behind (they lose one seat compared to the five held in the last legislative session). Instead, the Christian Democrats will win three seats (-1) as the left-liberals D66 (+1). The Farmers' Movement (BBB) ​​will enter the European Chamber for the first time, and will get two seats, as will Wilders' other government allies, the centrists of Peter Umtsigt, who will get only one seat. However, the Forum for Democracy (FvD) party led by populist leader Thierry Baudet is out of the running: if it initially gets one seat, according to new opinion polls, the party will suffer a resounding disaster, losing all four of its current seats in Strasbourg.
