33 - VVD - Conservative
19 - CDA - Christian Democrat
19 - D66 - Liberal
This gives the coalition 71 seats, short of the 76 needed for a majority; however, minority governments have happened before.
The main opposition parties are as follows:
20 - PVV - Nativist
14 - SP - Socialist
14 - GL - Green Left
It's been speculated the Green Left would be willing to join the new coalition. I don't fully understand the nuance; but it's been widely reported in the dutch media that this is the most likely way the coalition would reach a majority.
9 - PvdA - Labour
5 - CU - Social Conservative
5 - PvdD - Environment+Animal
4 - 50+ - Pensioner
3 - SGP - Christian Right
Labour is the largest loser in this, falling to 9 from 38 seats.
As well two new parties join Parliament:
3 - DENK - Social Democratic, and Multicultural, Pro-immigration
2 - FvD - Populistic, Nativistic, Eurosceptic, and Conservative
Feel free to compare this to my prediction. Despite the fact I placed VVD far higher than polls suggested, they managed to outperform even that.
