AMSTERDAM — The Christian Democrat CDA and Liberal VVD have failed to win a majority for a joint return to government.
But a majority rule government made up of only the Christian Democrat CDA and Labour PvdA is also uncertain.
The CDA and PvdA would need a third party to form a government and could possibly call on the ChristenUnie to create a majority Cabinet.
The CDA, Liberal VVD and ChristenUnie would not form a majority either and the VVD has already indicated it should not enter government based on its election result.
But if the Freedom Party PVV of Geert Wilders is added to the mix, a right-wing government with the CDA, VVD and PVV is possible.
A left-wing government also appears to be just out of reach. The PvdA, Socialist SP and green-left GroenLinks would not be able to form a majority.
However, a coalition government involving the CDA, PvdA and SP would form a large majority government.
