The Party for Freedom (PVV) has decided to put up candidates election to the EU Parliament. According to the PVV website, as translated by our Flemish correspondent VH:
PVV in Europe for the interest of the Netherlands
The Party for Freedom will take part in elections to the European parliament in June 4, 2009. The PVV is campaigning for the Netherlands.
The PVV wants less Europe and more Netherlands. Each year the Netherlands spends billions on the EU and this had better be spent in the Netherlands, especially in these times of economic crisis. “Those billions have to return to the Dutch citizens instead of subsidizing farmers in Poland, France, and Portugal with the money,” said party leader Geert Wilders.

The PVV also wants the European Union to focus on its original mission: economic (and monetary) cooperation. Also, the PVV does not want any new country in the EU, and prefers to see corrupt countries like Romania and Bulgaria leave the EU. Turkey should never join the European Union, not now, not in a hundred years, not in a thousand years, never.
Also, the PVV wants more control for the Dutch parliament, which should be able to stop independent European decisions, so that the Netherlands remains a truly sovereign country.
Wilders: “The PVV is going to the EU for the Netherlands; the Dutch interest is most important for us all. As the only party to make this demand, we want all our money back from Europe, veto rights for the Dutch parliament, Romania and Bulgaria out of the EU and Turkey never in!”
The list of candidate from the PVV for the European elections will be published in a few weeks.
