CDA, PvdA pleased with results mid-term elections.
CDA and PvdA are pleased with the results of the mid-term municipal elections. The Labour Party did well in Friesland and became the largest party in Heerenveen and Leeuwarden . The Christian Democrats won the election in Alphen.
Diederik Samsom speaks of a beautiful evening. It's difficult to say anything about the national impact from the results of this election, but at least the party did well in Friesland, according to the Labour leader. Samson congratulated D66 with their increase in seats, and calls it unfortunate the VVD suffered losses.
SP leader Emiel Roemer explains the gain of the Labour Party partly because the SP did not partake in the elections in Friesland, so they didn't have competition.
The SP leader is pleased with the gain of the SP in Alphen aan de Rijn, and points out the VVD took a hit.
The CDA won convincingly in Alphen aan de Rijn. CDA leader Buma speaks of a very important moment for the CDA . All four municipalities where elections were held gave off a strong CDA sound, which is important for those towns and for the CDA, states Buma.
