Dutch Socialist about Wilders
The socialist leader, Wouter Bos, has now declared that he does not want to exclude the future party of Geert Wilders from the executive branch. He seems to want to distance him from the former leader ship of the socialist party who refused to talk with Pim Fortuyn during the 2002 election. The socialist where defeated by Pim Fortuyn after the socialist called him a racist and refused to talk to him. Pim Fortuyn was killed by an leftwing activist just days before the election. The socialist party seems now to want to use an other approach for the coming election.
Although some support the tactical vision of party leader Wouter Bos, there is also resistance. For example from representative Khadija Arib a Muslim who says they will never form a government with Wilders. She is quoted as saying: "He has only one mission: against Islam. There is nothing that we have in common".
