Utrecht referendum for mayor flops

Around 9% of voters turned out for Utrecht’s referendum to chose a new mayor, making the result invalid (a 30% turn out was required).

With over 60% of the votes that were cast, Aleid Wolfsen had the biggest public support.
There has been much criticism that the contest was only between two white male Labour party members.
