Dutch anti-Islam politician Wilders promises firm opposition
by Thomas Escritt
Geert Wilders, leader of the anti-Islam Party for Freedom, congratulated Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte on his victory in Wednesday's parliamentary election, promising firm parliamentary opposition if he did not end up in the coalition.
"I would rather have been the largest party," he told reporters outside his office in parliament. "(But) we gained seats. That's a result to be proud of."
Even outside of government, his party's influence on Dutch politics had been enormous, he added.
