Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s center-right People’s Party appears to have won 31 seats in the 150-strong parliament, with right-wing anti-immigration, Eurosceptic leader Geert Wilders and the Social Democrats tying in second and third places, according to the first exit polls. Complete results are expected Thursday.
