Opinion polls in Holland show that a majority of voters favor the Jewish former mayor of Amsterdam for prime minister.

Some 52 percent of those polled last week would vote for Marius Job Cohen as prime minister in national elections scheduled for June, the European Jewish Press reported.

Cohen was selected from a list that included current Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende and extreme-right, anti-Islam campaigner Geert Wilders.

Cohen, the mayor of Amsterdam for nine years, was chosen as the new leader of the Dutch Labor Party on March 12.
