Dutch citizens with dual nationals must lose their voting rights and eligibility for holding political positions in the Netherlands, according to PVV leader Geert Wilders. "The Netherlands is our country. It must be run by Dutch, who are elected by Dutch. By Dutch who do not even have the appearance of double loyalty", he said to newspaper De Telegraaf.
