VVD leader is not right-wing, says Verdonk

The Liberal party (VVD) needs vision and a ‘decent right-wing’ leader like the new French president Nicolas Sarkozy, says former contender Rita Verdonk in HP/De Tijd.

Current leader Mark Rutte is ‘a decent VVD man but not really right-wing,’ Verdonk tells the magazine.
Verdonk, who sees herself as an example of the ‘decent right’ attempted to seize the VVD leadership from Rutte last year.
