ELECTIONS

Regular elections for the Noordkamer occur every four years on the last Wednesday of October. After these elections, the king appoints an Advisor General, who will try to form a government and, if necessary, investigate on forehand which parties are able to form a coalition, when no party has an absolute majority in the parliament. The new government (Oostkamer) is sworn in on the following first Friday of February. Since the last time the constitution was changed, the Noordkamer has 175 seats.

The Zuidkamer is elected after regular municipal elections, which occur also every four years on the last Wednesday of October, but not necessarily in the same year. The newly elected members of the thirteen municipal councils (including the one of New Stavoren) elect the members of the Zuidkamer. Both the new municipal councils and the new Zuidkamer is installed on the following first Friday of February.
