#THENETHERLANDS: Geert Wilders Aims To Upset Dutch And EU Politics In Today's Election

[world politics news]

Up to 13 million people in the Netherlands are voting in today's Dutch election seen as a face-off between populist Geert Wilders and the current Prime Minister Mark Rutte. Wilders, the leader of the anti-Islamist Party for Freedom, is taking on Rutte in the knife-edge election race. Dutch media were touting new polls that showed Wilders' party slumping just before the election, but as we've seen in the US election last November, polling can sometimes get it wrong, and Wilders has led in the polls for months.
