Outgoing Dutch Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende has resigned as his party’s leader as exit polls showed his Christian Democrats were defeated in the parliamentary elections.
According to preliminary results released by local TV NOS early in the morning, the People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) won 31 out of the total 150 parliamentary seats, becoming the biggest party in the second Chamber of the States-General. It was followed by the Labour Party (PvdA) which grabbed 30 seats.
'I chose that picture of Geert Wilders, because I honestly think there needs to be a recount in votes and also to show that the Jews and Muslim/Islamic are afraid of our freedoms and will not stop until they have conquered over white nations'
The Christian Democrats lost 20 seats and finished with 21.
On Wednesday, Balkenende also resigned his parliamentary seat, accepting full responsibility for the party’s poor performance.
Geert Wilders, the leader of the Freedom Party (PVV), an extreme anti-immigrant party, appeared to have leapt to third place with 23 seats. more
