Guy VERHOFSTADT, President of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in the European Parliament, today sent his congratulations to both Liberal parties on their outstanding election results in the Netherlands.

"The victory of VVD in topping the polls will bring another Prime Minister to the Liberal table in Europe and marks an historic achievement for the Party. The 31 seats that Mr Rutte's party gained in the national parliament will provide a strong base for taking the necessary, if tough, measures on the economy to create growth and job opportunities in the longer term."

"Alexander Pechtold's D66 also did exceptionally well in more than tripling their score of parliamentarians. I look forward to working with both parties in the months and years ahead."
