57 percent), and Reformed Political Party (SGP, 3.9 percent), the Dutch news web portal reported.

The eurskeptic Forum for Democracy party (FvD) of Thierry Baudet will not be part of the coalition in South Holland where it came first during March elections with 17.43 percent of the vote.

According to the portal, the FvD was involved in talks with the VVD and CDA, but they lacked a forth party to form a valid majority.

The FvD, party which topped polls nationwide, entered a coalition in only one province, Limburg, the media added.

The Netherlands held local elections across its twelve provinces on March 20.
