Rutte reiterated his earlier statements that the VVD will never work together with the PVV in government.Wilders, who appeared to be wearing a bullet-proof vest during the debate, has made very few public appearances duri

presstv-dutch election rivals clash in tense televised debate

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte has clashed with his main rival anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders, as they laid out starkly opposing visions of their country’s future in an election campaign now consumed by a diplomatic row with Turkey.Two days before Wednesday’s crucial general election, the Netherlands is mired in a war of words with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, something that has provided fodder for Wilders and his uncompromising anti-immigration stance.‘You are being taken hostage by Erdogan. Close the Dutch borders,” Wilders told Rutte, as tempers flared in the 30-minute head-to-head televised debate.“That’s a totally fake solution,” Rutte shot back, “you want Nexit, you want the Netherlands out of Europe. You know what it will cost ... don’t do it.”Wilders, who says he is on a m

election steps up a gear as rutte joins rivals in tv debate

Photo: Phil Nijhuis/ HHPrime minister Mark Rutte entered the debating arena for the first time in the election campaign as eight party leaders went head-to-head in Amsterdam’s Carré Theatre.The second televised debate of the campaign on Sunday was a more heated encounter than last week’s five-way leaders’ debate, but none of the challengers to Rutte landed a decisive blow.The format of the evening, with four mini-debates between four leaders, drawn by lots, meant Rutte avoided a direct clash with his closest rival, Christian Democrat leader Sybrand Buma.Buma, who has been encroaching on Rutte’s VVD party in the polls, sought to promote himself as a more trustworthy, conservative alternative. In the opening debate on health he reminded viewers of the prime minister’s promise in 2012 not to

geert wilders’ anti-islam party loses ground ahead of fierce dutch elections

Just two weeks ahead of the national elections, Geert Wilders' dominant anti-Islam party has lost it's front-runner status in a fiercely fought campaign.

dutch election wide open as all vie to pick up wilders votes

The Dutch election is wide open going into the last full week of campaigning, as support for the populist message of Geert Wilders declined and Prime Minister Mark Rutte failed to pick up the balance.With polls showing five parties are now in contention to place first in the March 15 vote, leaders tried to capitalise on the opening over the weekend. Rutte touted his Liberal-led government's economic record, while Wilders said it would be untenable to exclude his Freedom Party from a coalition if it scored highly.

geert wilders: what to know about the 'dutch donald trump'

Dutch far-right politician Geert Wilders has spent more than a decade encouraging popular resentment against Muslims, the E.U. and immigrants. What were once fringe views have turned into a national movement, which has many asking whether the March 15 Netherlands elections will turn into another populist revolt against the established liberal order.Polls currently show Wilders' anti-immigration Party for Freedom (PVV) running neck and neck with Prime Minister Mark Rutte's Liberals. With elections in France, Germany and potentially Italy on the horizon, how Wilders fares in Holland will be viewed as a bellwether for the future of the E.U. Here's what we know about him:Why is he compared to Donald Trump?Wilders gained the nickname of the "Dutch Trump" for his ability to court controversy, hi

why the netherlands has lurched to the far-right

Anti-immigration firebrand Geert Wilders is neck and neck with the country's Prime Minister ahead of Wednesday's vote. The Netherlands is often considered one of the most liberal and tolerant countries on the planet.It’s not just tourists flocking to Amsterdam for recreational drugs and legalised prostitution – the country was also the first in the world to legislate for same-sex marriage and takes a progressive approach to euthanasia.But for most of the past 18 months – the leading party in the polls has been the stridently anti-immigrant, anti-Islam, anti-EU Party for Freedom (the PVV).The party’s leader, international provocateur Geert Wilders, saw his popularity surge in December, when he was found guilty of inciting racial discrimination against Moroccan immigrants.Similar to rhetoric

geert wilders: who is the far-right dutch politician?

Few politicians are receiving as much media coverage - or stirring up as much controversy – in the Netherlands as Party for Freedom (PVV) leader and founder Geert Wilders.The blond, bouffant-haired 53-year-old, who has compared the Koran to Hitler's Mein Kampf, has become the latest face of anti-Islamic sentiment in Europe.In the wake of what the Washington Post calls a "global wave of populism that turned 2016 upside down", Wilders's political stance has him neck-and-neck with Prime Minister Mark Rutte ahead of the country's general election on 15 March, according to the latest polls.But what else is there to know about Wilders - and what is the story behind his rise to prominence?What is his background?Hailing from the Dutch town of Venlo, Wilders went to Israel in 1981, when he was 18,
