About our Geert Wilders news

Latest news on Geert Wilders, a prominent Dutch politician known for his far-right and anti-Islam stances, who has recently made significant headlines in Dutch politics. In the 2023 General Election, Wilders, leading the Party for Freedom (PVV), achieved a notable victory. According to exit polls, the PVV is set to win about 35 of the 150 seats in the Tweede Kamer, the lower house of the Dutch Parliament. This result marks a substantial increase from the number of seats the party won in the 2021 election and represents a major shift in Dutch political dynamics.

Wilders, often referred to as the "Dutch Trump" due to his distinctive bouffant dyed hair and his outspoken rhetoric, has been a divisive figure in Dutch politics. His political platform is characterized by strong anti-Islam, anti-immigrant, and anti-European Union sentiments. The recent election results, indicating a landslide victory for his party, have been described as a political earthquake, likely to have significant implications not just in the Netherlands but across European politics as well.

On 13 March 2024, Wilders announced that he was abandoning his bid to become prime minister, citing a lack of support of other parties to form a coalition.
