Far-right Dutch party makes big gains in local elections

The Netherlands today held municipal elections in hundreds of cities and towns across the country. The Freedom Party, a populist, anti-Muslim, and anti-immigration party led by Geert Wilders, ran in just two of those elections. In one city, it came in first, and in the other city, the Hague, it came in second. The party wants to outlaw Muslim headscarves in Holland.
