Following the success of Pirates for Iceland, and the strong showing of the Icelandic Pirate Party the next European Election on the horizon for Pirates to keep an eye on is the Dutch General Election in March 2017.

Proportional Representation:

The Dutch electoral system is one of the most inclusive systems in the whole of Europe. There are 150 seats in the Dutch Parliament (Tweede Kamer - "House of Representatives") and there is straightforward proportional representation across the whole country in a single election. This means that it is theoretically possible to gain a seat in Parliament whilst getting just under 1% of the vote across the country as a whole.
