Dutch election: Wilders defeat celebrated by PM Rutte. Dutch people rejected "the wrong kind of populism", Prime Minister Mark Rutte has said, as he celebrated victory in Wednesday's election.

"The Netherlands said 'Whoa!'" he declared after his centre-right VVD party's lead positioned him for a third successive term as prime minister.

With nearly all votes counted, his party easily beat the anti-immigration Freedom party of Geert Wilders.

Fellow eurozone countries France and Germany also face elections this year.

The Dutch race was seen as a test of support for nationalist parties that have been gaining ground across Europe.

Mr Wilders insisted "the patriotic spring" would still happen.

The euro gained as the results pointed to a clear victory for the prime minister's party.

At least the Dutch electorate had the good sense to see what Wilders would mean for their nation = hate..

Great result
