Geert Wilders' party second biggest in polls
Monday 16 February 2009
The row over the banning of anti-immigration MP Geert Wilders from entering Britain last week has not boosted the popularity of his PVV party greatly, according to the latest online poll by Maurice de Hond.
The populist PVV would win 25 seats in the 150-seat parliament in an election was held now, just two more than a week ago. The party currently has nine MPs.
The two extra seats come from the main government partners, the Christian Democrats (CDA) and Labour, who both lost one each in the latest opinion poll. This makes the PVV the second biggest party after the CDA.
