AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Dutch anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders, who was trailing far behind the party of Prime Minister Mark Rutte in exit polls in parliamentary elections, said Rutte “has not seen the last of me”.

“Thank you PVV Voters! We won seats!,” Wilders said in a tweet. “The first victory is in! And Rutte has not seen the last of me yet!!”

Wilders’ PVV was trailing Rutte’s VVD by a seemingly insurmountable 12 seats in an exit poll published by Dutch broadcaster NOS.
