The numbers aren't totaled yet but Geert Wilders does not appear to carried the day.
His party has gained seats and he's still a force in Netherlands politics but the Dutch at the last minute behaved like the Dutch. The nothing ventured...nothing lost.
Wilders was ultimately a little too daring a choice for them.
At least for now.
VVD (incumbent)31 seats
Labour 9 seats
PVV (Wilders) 19 seats
Socialists -14 seats
Christian Democrats 19 seats
D66 19 seats
And sixteen others seats going to minor fringe parties.
