Christian Democrats win in RTL poll

The Christian Democrats emerged, as expected, as the biggest party in the controversial RTL exit poll, broadcast just 10 minutes before voting in the general election was due to end at 9pm. The poll, by TNS Nipo, gave the CDA on 38 seats (currently 44).

Labour (PvdA) was second with 34 (42) and the Socialist Party took 30 (9). The anti-immigration party PVV led by Geert Wilders won eight seats, according to the poll.
