PVV supporters form pro-democracy association

A group of people who support the anti-Islam PVV have formed an association in an effort to boost the level of democracy within the party, the Telegraaf reports.

The PVV has no official members or party structure and its leader Geert Wilders has so far resisted calls to make the party more democratic.
‘If the party cannot become democratic from within, it can do so from outside,’said Geert Tomlow, who had hoped to become an MP for the PVV but failed to make the party list.
The VvPVV hopes to attract 5,000 members to put pressure on Wilders to change hs position.
PVV MP Hero Brinkman had called on Wilders to make the party more democratic. He is not involved in this initiative, the Telegraaf says.
