Wilders’ PVV tops opinion poll

A new opinion poll from Maurice de Hond’s polling organisation puts the anti-immigration PVV in top position – with one seat more than the ruling VVD Liberals.

The poll states the populist party would win 24 seats if there were to be a general election tomorrow, up nine on its actual total. By contrast, the VVD would win 23, down from the 41 seats it has in the current parliament and two down on last week.

The Dutch parliament has 150 seats, meaning the PVV would win 16% of the vote.
