Can the Dutch Pirates get into parliament?

So far, none of the over 40 pirate parties throughout the world have gotten into national parliament. Sweden got into the European Parliament in 2009, Germany has managed several state elections throughout 2011 and 2012, and there are some pirates spread out locally (full list).

Next week marks the national election in the Netherlands, in which the Pirate Party might actually enter parliament. Several polls now show between one and two pirate seats in the parliament.
