A “historic” motion in Holland’s parliament has passed, according to Geert Wilders and his Party for Freedom (PPV), opening an opt-out arrangement from the European Union’s mass migration policy.

Wilders’ PPV, known for wanting to slow down mass migration and protect Dutch culture, won 37 seats in the general election last month, making it the largest party representing parliament. 

Dutch commentator Eva Vlaardingerbroek celebrated the development on X Friday morning, saying  ”Parliament just voted in favor of a HISTORIC motion: The Netherlands will now be able to opt out of the EU’s asylum and migration policy – following in Denmark’s footsteps.” 

The PPV, along with three other parties, voted in favour of the motion, as reported Voice of Europe. The motion advocates for an opt-out scheme similar to Denmark’s, and was put forward in response to a recent EU proposal to reform European treaties. 

Denmark’s opt-out scheme has managed immigration for two decades by incorporating strict policies such as limited access to benefits and services, strict conditions for family reunification, and restricted labor market access for those lacking Danish language skills.

Wilders told social media followers on Thursday, “We have become the largest party in the Netherlands, started providing information, delivered the new Speaker of the House, a new political reality has emerged and I am very proud of that!”

Wilders has naturally been slammed as “far-right” for being a critic of Europe’s near open border migration policy, despite several European countries facing rising levels of gang violence and sexual assault
