Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Labour still ahead in Netherlands

The opposition Labour Party (PvdA) could become the largest political organization in the Dutch Second Chamber, according to a poll by Maurice de Hond. The survey suggests that the PvDA, led by Wouter Bos, would secure 43 mandates in this year's election to the Second Chamber.

The Christian-Democratic Appeal (CDA) is second with 38 seats, followed by the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) with 31 seats, and the Socialist Party (SP) with 16 seats. Six other political organizations would send legislators to the Second Chamber.

The poll shows a one-seat drop for both the PvdA and the SP, while support for the VVD increased for the fourth consecutive week.
