Marcial Manrique Hernandez (born 20 April 1974) is a Dutch former army officer and former politician.[1]

He became a member of the House of Representatives for the Party for Freedom (PVV) on June 17, 2010. As an MP, he focused on matters of the Dutch defense.

Hernandez announced on July 3, 2012, in the wake of a press conference by Geert Wilders, that he had just left the PVV due to internal struggles. He did so together with fellow MP Wim Kortenoeven.[2] They formed the Kortenoeven/Hernandez Group, that was in Parliament until September 19, 2012 (after the general elections, in which they didn't take part).
