(Before It's News)

Read aguanomics for the world’s best analysis of the politics and economics of water Dutch politics are complicated due to institutions that (a) allow people to vote for any party in a national “jurisdiction”, (b) the ease at which small (one member) parties can enter the popular chamber (de Tweede Kamer), and (c) the near-certainty that several parties must join into a “ruling coalition” to collect enough seats to support a prime minister (Minister President).

I cannot vote in the election tomorrow since I am not a Dutch citizen, but I am very hopeful that Geert Wilders’s (populist, nationalist, racist) Freedom Party will (despite receiving donations from American conservatives) have weak results.
