Louis Bontes (born 28 February 1956 in Rotterdam) is a Dutch politician and former police officer. He has been an MP since 17 June 2010. He represented the PVV until 2013, and focused on matters of the European Union, civil law, security, police and foreign affairs (Africa, Middle and South America). From 2009 to 2010 he was an MEP for the PVV. In October 2013, after Bontes talked to the media about his being disappointed with the methods of the PVV, the party's parliamentary group expelled him. Bontes remains in parliament as an independent, and stated he would keep voting along with the PVV.[1]

In May 2014 Louis Bontes, Joram van Klaveren and Johan Driessen founded VoorNederland (VNL).

Bontes worked many years in the Dutch police force, lately as district commander harbor for the Rotterdam-Rijnmond area.
