Most Dutch have come to realize that Geert Wilders was right all along.
NOTE: Because of a similar political mindset that exists in Sweden, even though the PVV comes out on top, it doesn’t mean that he will be able to form a government. The other parties could simply refuse to join and then it would become an opposition run government.
Geert Wilders on Track to Become Next Prime Minister of the Netherlands
Geert Wilders, chairman of the Party for Freedom (PVV), has been celebrating on Twitter today. The reason? His party is now the biggest party in the Dutch polls. With elections coming up in March 2017, the populist politician seems to be on track to become the Netherlands’ next prime minister.
According to the latest poll of Maurice de Hond, the Netherlands’ most famous pollster, the PVV would become the biggest party in parliament if elections were held today (link in Dutch): they’d get 33 seats in the 150-seat lower chamber.
Geert Wilders’ Freedom Party (PVV) is leading the polls in the Netherlands. The party wants to stop Islamisation and restore law and order.
The PVV is the Netherlands’ one and only populist party. It’s more or less “conservative,” although certainly not conservative on issues such as health care. Wilders is especially well-known for his criticism of Islam and Europe’s open-borders policy, which he routinely — and accurately — describes as suicidal. His main goal is to end “the Islamization” of Europe generally and of the Netherlands specifically.
