"On June 9th we will become the biggest party in the Netherlands"
That statement was recently made by Geert Wilders, a leader of the Freedom Party, who is well known for his outspoken stance against Islam and immigration.
According to preliminary vote counts in local elections, the party has earned leading spots in major cities such as the Hague and Almere.
Experts say the strong showing indicates a promising position for the Freedom party in June's national elections.
