Holland's pro-European parties won the majority of the seats in the country's election yesterday, with the right-of-center Liberals retaining power after edging out the left-wing Labour party by 41-39 seats in the 150-member lower house of parliament. The result has sidelined the anti-austerity and anti-bailout parties, thereby reducing their ability to cause mischief.
