De Partij voor de Vrijheid (afgekort: PVV) is een Nederlandse politieke partij.

Wilders is tevens het enige lid van de partij en daarnaast fractievoorzitter in de Tweede Kamer, partijleider en partijvoorzitter.


Bij de Tweede Kamerverkiezingen 2006 kwam de PVV voor het eerst in de Tweede Kamer. Sinds 2009 is de partij vertegenwoordigd in het Europees Parlement, sinds 2011 ook in de Provinciale Staten en in de Eerste Kamer.

The Party for Freedom (Dutch: Partij voor de Vrijheid, PVV) is a right-wing political party in the Netherlands. Founded in 2005 as the successor to Geert Wilders' one-man party in the House of Representatives, it won nine seats in the 2006 general election, making it the fifth largest party in parliament. It came second in the 2009 European Parliament election, winning 4 out of 25 seats. In the 2010 general election it won 24 seats, making it the third largest party. Since then, the PVV has agreed to support the minority government led by Prime Minister Mark Rutte, without having ministers in the Rutte cabinet. However the PVV withdrew its support in April 2012 due to differences over budget cuts.


With programme items like administrative detention and strong assimilationist stance on the integration of immigrants into Dutch society, the Party for Freedom breaks from the established centre right parties in the Netherlands (like the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy, VVD). In addition, the party is consistently Eurosceptic and since early July 2012, according to its then presented program for the elections a few months later on September 12, even strongly advocating withdrawal from the EU. PVV is the name under which the foundation Stichting Groep Wilders operates. It has Geert Wilders as its sole member., making the party unique in the Dutch parliament.
