Polls in the Netherlands show voters plan to follow France in rejecting the European Union constitution on Wednesday's referendum.
The latest surveys show about 60 percent plan to vote no.
Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende has made a last minute appeal for passage. He says a "no" vote would damage the Netherlands' reputation as a champion of European integration.
Many Dutch voters say they fear a European wide constitution will create social problems and cost jobs -- two of the reasons French voters gave for rejecting the pact Sunday.
French President Jacques Chirac said Tuesday the "no" vote was not a rejection of European ideals but a call for action against such problems as unemployment.
Mr. Chirac named Interior Mister Dominique de Villepin as the new prime minister, replacing Jean-Pierre Raffarin, who resigned after the failed referendum.
