Cohen factor puts Labour in first place

The Labour party has overtaken the Christian Democrats and Geert Wilders’ anti-Islam PVV in the latest Maurice de Hond opinion poll.

With three months to the general election, the poll puts Labour on 27 seats, up three on last week. The poll was taken this weekend, after the resignation of Wouter Bos and the announcement that Amsterdam mayor Job Cohen is standing for the party leadership.
Labour’s new support comes at the expense of the Socialist party, Liberal democrats D66 and left-wing green party GroenLinks, De Hond said.
The De Hond poll puts the PVV on 26 seats, one down on last week, and Christian Democrats on 25, up one on a week ago.
