For the first time after the war new elections are held for the House of Representatives. In the Effectenbeurs (stock exchange) in Amsterdam the votes are counted. SHOTS: - posters for different political parties in the streets; - people stand in long lines outside the polling stations (a.o. Rijksmuseum Amsterdam?) and enter; - several shots of all kinds of people in voting booths all over the country, a.o. people in traditional attire; - in the Effectenbeurs long rows of civil servants count the votes by hand and with counting machines; - results are passed on by telephone, by telegram and by telex and put up on the outside wall of the building; a large crowd has gathered on the street.
