The Tweede Kamer der Staten-Generaal or Tweede Kamer (English: House of Representatives) is the lower house of the bicameral parliament in the Netherlands. The 150 seats are filled through elections once every four years, in which all Dutch nationals over the age of 18 are eligible to vote. The Netherlands uses a party-list proportional representation system, in which voters vote for a specific candidate linked to a political party using an electoral list. The votes for the specific candidates are added up and determine the number of seats per party as well as the occupants of these seats.
