The Party for freedom (PVV) of Geert Wilders is since the general election of 2010 the thord party in the Netherlands. Foremost it is the indispensable partner of the minority government of the coalition of the conservatives of the VVD and the Christian-democrats of the CDA. This presents the political trajectory of Geert Wilders since his beginnings as parliamentary assistant of the group of Frits Bolkestein in 1990. It situates the electoral success of his party which is not really a party as it has no member, in the context of the debates on immigration, integration and Islam, the political assassinations of Pim Fortuijn in 2002 and Theo van Gogh in 2004, and the rise of anti-Islamist populist movements in the Netherlands. Finally it reviews the main aspects of the electoral geography of the PVV.
