Labour party leader Wouter Bos told delegates to the party congress on Saturday that integrating newcomers into Dutch society will be his priority, according to press reports.
‘It is the key to winning back the hearts of the people,’ he said.
Bos said that the building of mosques, training imams and Muslims working in the caring professions must be accepted. But he added that the Labour party will not tolerate those who discriminate against or denigrate immigrants, homosexuals or women.
