Dutch election polls and possible coalitions (3)

Mind Map © Hans Buskes

This is the third mind map in a series (see mind map one and two) that will be updated continuously and possible coalitions depicted (spreadsheets are generated within iMindmap 6). Results are based on the “Peilingwijzer”.

Every week Mastermindmaps asks persons to make a coalition based on the poll results.

This week (34),Vincent van Eekhout, procurement manager AkzoNobel, delivers an out-of-the-box coalition consisting of VVD, D66 and SP. A coalition of left and liberals.

Pieter Meulman, freelance senior communications advisor & trainer forms a strong coalition, but needs  five parties (86 of the 175 seats). In practice however it is difficult to get 5 parties to agree.

Previous (week 31) Jan van Mersbergen, writer of ‘Naar de overkant van de nacht’ (2011). His  choice leads to a minority cabinet on the basis of the poll results of 2nd of August.

Bob van Duuren, CEO Publishing Company Van Duuren Media succeeds in forming a majority cabinet. However his coalition (five parties needed and only 76 of the 150 seats) shows how difficult it will be to form a majority coalition as a result of the elections of 2012.

Week 30, Paul Haseloop, student International Relations University of Groningen. His coalition is still possible.
