The anti-Islam PVV on Thursday published its list of candidates for the ten senate seats it is thought to have won during the provincial elections earlier this month.
Most noticable among the candidates is the 63-year-old Ronald Sörensen at number five. Sörensen founded the Rotterdam party Leefbaar Rotterdam in 2002 where the controversial politician Pim Fortuyn joined him. In May of that year, Fortuyn, who was leading the national party into the elections, was murdered.
Above Sörensen on the PVV list are Machiel de Graaf, Reinette Klever, Marcel de Graaff and Gom van Strien.
