Wilders: No dual citizenship

12 03 2011

From Radio Netherlands Worldwide:

Freedom Party (PVV) leader Geert Wilders says he assumes a woman recently elected to the Gelderland provincial council for the party will get rid of her double nationality as soon as possible.

Petra Kouwenberg holds both Dutch and Turkish nationality, but according to Geert Wilders, he did not know she also had Turkish nationality until very recently. The party leader said Ms Kouwenberg is eager to get rid of her Turkish nationality and to this end will visit the Turkish embassy on Friday.

The issue of Ms Kouwenberg’s double nationality is an embarrasment to the PVV. In parliament, the party has consistently villified politicians holding double nationality, claiming this could lead to a conflict of interest.

Read the rest.

I imagine Gidi Markuszower also had dual citizenship.

No particular reflection on Ms Kouwenberg [apart from being PVV] but our Geert gets his candidates by advertising. The result might be charitably termed “mixed”.

Even if we give him some benefit of logic and use his words about loyalty, Wilders fails at that point as well.

For someone who is demanding single-minded loyalty and non-conflict of interests when supporting our country, Wilders again and again appears to be more supportive of Israeli right-wing issues, Settler programs and verbatum quoting of Kahanist anti-Islam rhetoric. Add to that the inclusion of Markuszower in his team and we have a picture of someone who is a current MP and with a serious conflict of interest problem – let alone being a racist, bigoted hate-monger who lives for populaist-nationalist hero-worship.
