People's Party for Freedom and Democracy
| People's Party for Freedom and Democracy |
|Headquarters||Mauritskade 21, The Hague|
|Ruling party of the Netherlands.|
People's Party for Freedom and Democracy or VVD is one of the main Dutch political parties, being part of all national government coalitions since 2010, just after the 2009 Queen's Day Attack.
The party led the yearly ranking for most resignations for corruption and integrity problems for the 2010s by political watchdogs.
During the 2000s, Rutte was trained by deep politician Frits Bolkestein and his mentor Geert Wilders during his early years in parliament.
Following deep politician Jozias van Aartsen resigning after some big losses in Dutch municipal elections, Rutte's party began an internal election for the position of party leader in 2006. Rutte competed against 2 others but his media-appearances made him the preferred winner of the election. Among his vocal supporters was spooky Frank de Grave. Rita Verdonk turned out to be the only serious opponent. Verdonk was a neocon-version of Geert Wilders, and supported by Bolkestein.
“Anyone that can't efface themselves for support of the liberal vision, can bugger off. There have been hassles ever since Bolkestein left. Look what happened with Van Aarsten and Zalm. This is the line. I'll not hesitate to throw anyone out of the party if needed.”
Mark Rutte (2007) 
Verdonk lost the party election against Rutte with 5%, but received more votes - 67.355 - from the electorate during the general election of 2006, a feat never achieved in Dutch politics, which cause Bolkestein and Hans Wiegel to call for a new "advisory commission" to alter the party direction, something fiercely denied by Rutte. From this point - the "traditional conservatives" in the party became permanent critics of Rutte. Verdonk left the party and started a new movement one year later. Rutte also became known for his alleged harsh outbursts in interviews and meetings regarding his MPs. Rutte seemingly hijacked the party and never let loose from this point on out.
