Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yes, the SP has been doing well in city councils. But, local politics is quite different.

For example, there has always been a number of local parties that don't even exist at the national level, and can't make the jump to the national level very well (like the "Leefbaar" parties).

Local elections are a different kind of game, more different kinds of coalitions are possible, issues are easier.
