The nationalist political party Trots op Nederlands launched by independent MP Rita Verdonk on Thursday would win 22 seats in the 150-member parliament if elections were held now according to a Maurice de Hond opinion poll published at the weekend.
This is five more than the poll gave her a week ago.
The big loser is Verdonk’s former free-market Liberal (VVD) party. Of those that voted VVD at the last election, 40% would now vote for Verdonk, the poll indicated.
