I just wrote 'assigning people to seats' (based on 'Hoe wij kiezen' by Maurice de Hond). My father used to say that a vote for anyone but the 'lijsttrekker' is a lost vote, but this doesn't seem to support that. Is this a myth and what is it based on then? DirkvdM 12:16, 23 January 2006 (UTC)
- Het is een mythe. Ik denk dat de achtergrond is dat het vrijwel onmogelijk was om met voorkeurstemmen in de kamer te komen. Electionworld 20:24, 24 January 2006 (UTC)
I want start a new table for the election results overview because several parties have disappeared and appeared and changed in size. I'm not sure about the order, though. It should reflect the expected future size of parties but not be too different form the previous tables, so I suggest keeping the order of the biggest parties. The order I suggest is PvdA - VVD - CDA - SP - GroenLinks - PvdD - ChristenUnie - SGP - PvdV - EenNL. Another option would be to give a better grouping of similar parties bij changing the first parties to CDA - VVD - PvdA, placing the latter alongside the other left wing parties.

Election statistics for non-Nederlanderphones
Could someone advise me whether the figures viewabkle here are for this election, and whether they are complete / final? If they are not for this election, could someone direct me to the correct page within that website? Thanks. Adam 14:11, 23 November 2006 (UTC)
- Probably the contents of that site are different now than two years ago, but currently you can find the final parliament election results there: click on 'Tweede Kamer' in the left-hand column, select the year under 'jaartal', and click the 'Toon resultaten' button. I assume the numbers are complete/final, since they're published by the Kiesraad, the official elections body. Probably when there are new elections, and it's just after they were held, they might be tentative. The last elections were on 22 November 2006, and the final results were published on the 27th.

closed list, right?
- It's open-list proportionality, as the voter has some choice in who gets elected: if a candidate receives 25% of the seat threshold, s/he is automatically elected, even if the candidate's place on the list is too low to be elected based on the number of seats that the party gets.
