Polls show coalition will not be easy

The two exit polls following the end of voting in the Dutch general election both indicate it will be difficult to form a distinctive right or left-wing coalition. In both polls the current Christian Democrat/Liberal coalition fail to take a majority of the 150 parliamentary seats. The same applies for a left-wing government made up of Labour (PvdA), the Socialist Party (SP) and GroenLinks.
