People's Party for Freedom and Democracy


Last quote about People's Party for Freedom and Democracy

Cas Mudde
Recent victories for European centrists offer a chance to reflect on the phenomenon of populism – and draw some crucial lessons for the future• Cas Mudde is a US academic and writer. The electoral victories of Emmanuel Macron in France and Mark Rutte in the Netherlands have significantly changed the discourse on European politics. The international media has gone from “populism is unbeatable” to “populism is dead”. Obviously, neither is or was true. In fact, populist parties are still doing better in elections, on average, than ever before during the postwar era. Various European countries have populists in their government – including Finland, Greece, Hungary, Norway, and Slovakia – while the most powerful country in the world is at the mercy of a billionaire president who has wholeheartedly embraced the populism of some of his main advisers, notably Steve Bannon and Stephen

Geert Wilders

Thank you PVV Voters! We won seats! The first victory is in! And Rutte has not seen the last of me yet!!feedback

Mark Rutte

It appears that the VVD will be the biggest party in the Netherlands for the third time in a row. Tonight we'll celebrate a little. It is also an evening in which the Netherlands, after Brexit, after the American elections, said 'stop' to the wrong kind of

Mark Rutte

Well, this has nothing to do with elections. We have not sought… We did not seek this fight, it was Turkey deciding to create this chaos last Saturday. That's what I'm fighting for, not for myself, but I do believe that the present strategy, the present course of the government is the best way of moving forward – and no experiments!feedback

Mark Rutte

We do not rule out any party, not even … no party at all. At the same time there are huge differences between my party and the Labour Party and the Freedom

Mark Rutte

You want 'Nexit'. You want the Netherlands out of Europe. You know this will cost 1.5 million jobs. That would mean chaos for the Netherlands. In England (Britain), there's chaos too now, because of Brexit. You want to push the Netherlands into chaos too. Don't do it. I sincerely hope you're not going to be the biggest (party), that you won't form a cabinet, I will put up a tough fight. Don't do it. It's the worst news the Netherlands can have

Simon Kuper - Financial Times

If he compromises in order to join a coalition government, he becomes almost a standard Dutch politician, and therefore less interesting to the Horowitzes. More exciting to stay pure, and remain the only Dutch politician who is heard abroad, better known than Mark Rutte, the prime minister since 2010. Wilders' radicalism, like his dyed blond swept-back hair, gives him an international

Andre Krouwel

Wilders will play no role in the formation of a government. But Wilders plays a major role in the tone and content of the campaign and Wilders – even if he doesn't win a single seat – has already won because the two biggest right-wing parties have taken over his policies. The longest coalition formation was seven months. It wouldn't surprise me if this results leads to a very complicated and long formation

Albert Busch

Our prime minister did a very good job at the right moment for the elections. The chance he will be chosen tomorrow is much bigger than it was last

Angela Merkel

These comparisons are totally misleading, they belittle the suffering, especially in the case of the Netherlands which suffered so much under the Nazis. This is completely unacceptable and that's why the Netherlands have my full support and solidarity, especially also my Dutch colleague Mark

Sarah de Lange

He increasingly emphasizes the kind of issues that the PVV campaigns on, but then in a more moderate way. Rutte has recently taken up the issue of Dutch identity and immigration, emphasizing especially the fact that those who do not conform to our norms and values should not continue to live in the

Andrej Zaslove

He's been able to sell cuts and sell getting the books in order in a very pragmatic manner. He really wants to project himself as the candidate of common sense. The VVD gets to say, We're proud of what we did. The Netherlands looks good because of what we did, and now we can do

Geert Wilders

Nexit is the best thing that can happen to us. We will be in charge of our own country, we will have the key to our own front door again. Rutte said last year Britain would vanish from the face of the earth. They're doing better than

Jan Kok

And then you have Wilders and Rutte, the prime minister, saying, You don't like it here, then go away,' but these boys were born here. Where are they going to go?feedback

Mark Rutte

Turkey is a proud nation. The Netherlands is a proud nation. We can never do business under those sorts of threats and blackmail. The biggest problem in this case is that Turkey is talking about Turkish citizens who they want to talk to. These are Dutch citizens who possibly also have voting rights in

Andre Krouwel

Rutte is a key player in this because he is prime minister. We are the ones who really protect your interests, we are the ones who go down into the trenches to defend the Netherlands. The election is still wide open. What the right-wing parties are now doing is jumping on this theme from Turkey to – more than already was the case – emphasize themes of immigration, integration, the migrant problem and the concerns about what identity we still

Bianca Pander

Rutte is in the picture now: He's on every TV show, and on every

Bianca Pander

Rutte now has premier bonus. He can now show what leadership

Mohammed Mohandis

Some voters think we did the right thing taking responsibility in government, but others say, what are you doing with the VVD? You hear

Mark Rutte

Well yes, in the Netherlands it might be a particularly difficult phase after the elections but typically it can take some time but we eventually will form a

Geert Wilders

Movements like mine in France, in Germany, in Austria and Italy, we were getting stronger in the last few years even before Donald Trump came to

Sarah de Lange

Wilders has been in parliament for a longtime–first for the VVD, and now for the PVV. Nevertheless voters consider him an outsider … and that is more a way he presents himself than objective

Geert Wilders

Mr Rutte is right, there is a very big chance the PVV will be the biggest party in the Netherlands after the elections. But I don't agree with what he says that we do wrong kind of populism. We say what people want to hear when it comes to immigration, integration, Islam, problems which are

Alexander Pechtold

It's my ambition to form a coalition, a stable coalition and it's my personal ambition to become prime

Gijs De Vries

Wilders' discourse is increasingly being copied and rehashed by his competitors. Mr Rutte [current PM] wrote an open letter in a major Dutch newspaper, which, between the lines said 'if foreigners don't behave the way, we, the original Dutch want, they had better pack their bags'. The Christian Democrats leader, not to be outdone, has just said he would be happy to tear up the [EU's} treaty with Ukraine [which the Dutch rejected in a referendum], pandering to the anti-EU sentiment in part of the

Renee Keijzer

I find it difficult to make a decision. So much has happened in the world that it is hard to position yourself

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

The single market is beginning to suffer consequences that are not being managed – because they are not manageable – of the re-introduction of

Mark Rutte

Obviously I'm very happy my party came out number one. It's also a big responsibility now to live up to the expectations of our voters. We now have to focus on forming a stable governement as soon as
