Annual report Electoral Council 2017
An election for the House of Representatives was held in 2017. In addition, redivision elections were held in a number of municipalities. No national referendum was held. In the course of the year, it did become clear that the Electoral Council had indeed received a sufficient number of requests in both the introductory and the definitive phases to hold a referendum – at the same time as the March 2018 municipal council elections – on the 2017 Intelligence and Security Services Law (Dutch acronym: Wiv).
