Calls for PM Response on Dutch Politician’s Role in Norway Violence

Following the mass shootings in Norway last month, Dutch opposition parties have called for prime minister Mark Rutte to take a position on the role of anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders with respect to the tragedy. Mentioned at least 30 times in the shooter’s manifeso, Wilders has publicly distanced himself from the event. In the polarized political climate opposition parties are calling on the leading VVD for a statement of their position with respect to Wilders’ PVV party, which currently supports the minority government.
