PVV drops mosque ban in Limburg

The make-up of Limburg’s new provincial executive has been finalised, with the anti-Islam PVV providing two out of five board members.

The Christian Democrats also have two and the VVD one. The PVV narrowly beat the CDA to emerge as the biggest party in the province in the March elections.
However, the party’s main campaign issue, a ban on any more mosques in the province, has been dropped, the Volkskrant reports.
Instead, the new provincial authority is to focus on merging the two regional water boards, a €50m cut in subsidies and improving public transport.
CDA councillors still have to vote on the new alliance.
