The Tweede Kamer, lower house of parliament, will investigate whether it is possible to stop Parliament Members who split off from their own faction from starting a new faction, NU reports. This is due to the dissatisfaction in the Kamer with the possibilities that parliamentarians have to split off and then continue independently or team up with another loner to form a new faction.
Stephan Jansen, State Member for the PVV in South-Holland is leaving the party.
Former PVV parliamentarian Roland van Vliet says that the current eleven PVV MPs have remained loyal to party leader Geert Wilders strictly for financial reasons. Van Vliet told Elsevier magazine that the loyalty is bought by the comfortable salaries members of parliament receive.
PVV members of parliament (MP) met for the first time today since political leader, Geert Wilders' notorious statement about Moroccans. The members all backed their leader and will continue to move forward, according to Wilders.
Geert Wilders' party doesn't seem to entirely agree with everything he has said over the last week, as several PVV members have left the party.
Joram van Klaveren, member of parliament (MP) for the PVV, is the second PVV MP to resign over Wilders' Moroccan remarks within 24 hours. Van Klaveren was preceded by Roland van Vliet Thursday evening. Council member Chris van der Helm also resigned.
