Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

It's important to notice that the coalition (+ Wilders) doesn't have a majority in the upper chamber (Eerste Kamer). Even including the SGP they are one seat short (75 seats in total, 38 needed for a majority. CDA+VVD=35, SGP has 2, Wilders has none). That means they will have great difficulty getting any controversial laws through until march, though they of course will be able to change policies.
