Geert Wilder’s anti-Islam party PVV is trailing in fourth place in a TNS Nipo poll of local election voting intentions in the Hague, the Volkskrant reports on Friday.
The PVV said earlier it only plans to field candidates in the Hague and Almere because of a shortage of good candidates.
The PVV was the biggest party in the city at the European elections in June.
The TNS Nipo poll puts Labour in first place with 22%, followed by the two liberal parties D66 and VVD.
The local elections take place on March 3. All EU nationals, and non-EU nationals who have lived in the country for the past five years will also be able to vote.
