Netherlands: Wilders to enter coalition talks

Anti-Islam lawmaker Geert Wilders emerged Saturday as a possible member of the next Dutch government after the centrist Christian Democrats agreed to informal talks with Wilders and the free market party that won recent Dutch elections. “I am very happy … I hope we can sit at the table as soon as possible,” Wilders told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. “It is positive news.”
