VVD’s popularity increasing

The right-wing Liberals (VVD) are set to increase their share of the vote more than any other party in the March 7 provincial government elections, according to opinion pollster Maurice de Hond.

The party will draw support from Geert Wilders’ anti-immigration party PVV, which is not taking part in the election, and the Christian Democrats.
This means the VVD’s share of the vote will be nearer 20% than the 15% it scored in the November general election, De Hond said. The VVD, which was part of the last government, lost heavily in the November 22 election and will be in opposition when the new cabinet is installed.
