Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is aiming to secure a fourth term on Wednesday with an election victory that would put him on course to be the Netherlands’ longest-serving government chief.
Opinion polls put Rutte’s center-right VVD on course to claim first place in the general election, which is spread over several days due to the coronavirus pandemic but reaches its climax on Wednesday.
The questions hanging over the vote include how big Rutte’s victory will be and whether he will renew his current four-party coalition or may even need a fifth partner to govern. The performance of Geert Wilders’ far-right Freedom Party will also be closely watched.
