Amsterdam VVD leader opposes deal with Wilders

Eric van der Burg, leader of the right-wing Liberal VVD in Amsterdam, is against his party forming a new government with Geert Wilders’ anti-Islam PVV, local tv station AT5 reports.

“The PVV says things about large parts of the Netherlands and large parts of Amsterdam which I do not recognise. That is the main reason I say ‘you should not want to work with the PVV’.”

The national VVD, Christian Democrats and PVV are hoping to soon restart talks on forming a right-wing government.
