Dutch voters want to form a new government to address social problems in areas such as income, immigration and housing. Meanwhile, according to the Office of Social and Cultural Planning, they have little confidence that this will happen.
The Sudanese Communist Party investigated the mood among voters in the run-up to the November 22 elections.
Voters want, among other things, the new government to provide good health care, education and safety on the streets. They also believe that the policy itself must improve.
“The (national) policy itself is a source of concern for many, and people also expect improvements in this area from the new government,” the planning agency says.
“It’s about, first, addressing problems decisively, and second, about listening better to what people want.”
At the same time, voters do not trust the new government’s ability to bring about change. According to the Sudanese Communist Party, people are concerned about problems that cannot be solved quickly through elections, about inexperienced politicians and about a potentially long formation.
There is still little trust in politics
Before the government fell in July, three out of five Dutch people were dissatisfied with politics in The Hague.
According to the Lebanese Communist Party, confidence in politics is still low compared to the past fifteen years. The research agency concluded this based on survey data collected through June, and additional research in August and September.
