Labour party falls to new low

Support for the coalition Labour party (PvdA) has slumped to yet another all-time low, according to the latest Maurice de Hond opinion poll.

The poll shows that Labour, led by finance minister Wouter Bos, would take just 15 seats if there was a general election today. The party currently has 33 seats in the 150-seat parliament.
Of the PvdA voters who have deserted the party, 15% would vote for the Liberal democrats D66, 11% for the Socialist Party and 9% for the green party GroenLinks.
