Anti-Islam PVV teetering on collapse in Friesland
There is discord in the PVV-faction in the Friesland Provincial Council. PVV Council Member Jitske Eizema told the Leeuwarder Courant that she fears the party may be on the verge of collapse. According to the newspaper, Eizema feels ignored and unwelcome in the faction. She spoke of financial and procedural "bullying and asshole behavior". She filed a complaint with the provincial registry, but to no avail as the registry does not interfere in the factions' affairs. Eizema was elected to the provincial council on March 18th with 1963 votes. According to her, her party did not want her to be chosen. "I can not even thank my voters on the PVV's Facebook account", she told the newspaper after the election.
