Dutch coalition embraces Wilders

“The Christian Democrat (CDA) party in the Netherlands has voted to co-operate with an anti-Islam party, removing another hurdle to forming a conservative Dutch government.

At a convention in the city of Arnhem on Saturday, a 68 per cent majority of the 5,000 CDA-members cast ballots in favour of working with the Freedom Party, although there was significant opposition.

The Christian Democrats plan to join a minority cabinet led by the pro-business VVD party, with tacit support from Geert Wilders’ anti-Islam Freedom party. The trio have announced a blueprint to curtail immigration and make major spending cuts.”
