PVV picks ‘dream candidate’ for senate campaign

FaberThe leader of the anti-Islam PVV in Gelderland province is to head the party’s senate election campaign.

Marjolein Faber, who joined the PVV four years ago, has been in the senate since Machiel de Graaf moved to the lower house. She also played a prominent role in the campaign to have Co Verdaas removed as a junior minister over his expenses claims.

The senate is elected by members of the 12 provincial elections on May 26. The election for the provincial councils is on March 18.

Faber, described as a ‘dream candidate’ by party leader Geert Wilders, told Nos that Islam is an ‘objectionable ideology’. It is a ‘nightmare for women, gays and in fact everyone’, she said.

Faber also let there be no doubt about PVV senators supporting the cabinet in senate votes. ‘We are against the cabinet, we are against informal alliances and we are not going to stop,’ she said. ‘We will keep on going until they go home.’
