According to the exit poll conducted by the

The pro-European party Volt has responded happily to the exit poll.

"We are still getting there. It can still go in all directions. Caution is advised, but it is very nice to see that we are at least coming back in the poll thanks to the hard work of everyone. We are very proud of it. that we have recently designed the campaign as we have done ", said party leader Laurens Dassen.

JA21 leader Joost Eerdmans "would not have dared to dream" that his party might get three seats.

Eerdmans calls it "quite unique" that people "in these large numbers give their trust to a party that has existed for such a short time".

The party was created at the end of last year after Eerdmans and Annabel Nanninga left Forum for Democracy (FVD) after a fight.

"We will do everything we can with our group to capitalize on that trust and to achieve results", says Eerdmans.

"This is wonderful, but at the same time just the beginning."

BIJ1 and BoerBurgerBeweging in exit poll on one seat

Two other new parties, BIJ1 and BoerBurgerBeweging, will receive one seat, according to the exit poll.

These parties will therefore have to wait anxiously for the next few hours.

An exit poll is a poll based on what people have actually voted.

The margin of error is larger than usual this year due to the corona virus.

This is partly because postal votes were not included and Ipsos could not be present in some smaller polling stations to interview people.

The turnout for the House of Representatives elections is 82.6 percent, slightly higher than four years ago (81.9 percent).
