The decision is significant and was seen as “shocking” as Rutte has been dubbed ‘Teflon Mark’ for his longevity in politics. He said “insurmountable differences” within his coalition have prompted the move.

Polls today

The Dutch will vote for the 150 seats in the lower chamber of parliament today November 22.

Voting System

The Netherlands follows a proportional voting system. The total number of votes is divided by the 150 seats and any party hitting the threshold (last election it was just under 63,000) gets a seat in parliament, AFP explained.

Coalition governments are usually the norm as the system and number of parties make it harder for a clear majority to be gained.

Rutte will stay as PM till the new government is formed.

Changing political landscape

Mark Rutte’s fourth coalition government took office in January 2022 following the longest-ever coalition negotiations in Dutch political history, AP reported. Given the polarized and fragmented political landscape, an election for the 150-seat lower house of the Dutch parliament is expected later this year. Rutte’s Cabinet is likely to continue as a caretaker government until a new administration is formed.
