PVV Leader: Queen Should Have Only Ceremonial Duties

PVV leader Geert Wilders has stated that Queen Beatrix should be stripped of her governmental tasks and have only ceremonial duties. Wilders criticized the Queen’s Christmas speech as promoting multiculturalism. He added that under the Dutch constitution, the prime minister is responsible for what the Queen says and thus he could not hold her responsible for her political positions. Wilders intends to introduce a motion to change the constitution accordingly.
