Anti-Islam Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, whose Freedom Party has led opinion polls in the Netherlands for months, has published a one-page election manifesto calling for a ban on all asylum seekers and migrants from Islamic nations, and for the country to leave the European Union.

Mr. Wilders’ manifesto was the first published by a major political party ahead of elections for the lower house of Dutch parliament which are due by March 15 next year.
