Wim Voermans in Buitenhof on postal votes

In a lawsuit concerning the upcoming Dutch elections, the Partij voor de Dieren (Party for the Animals) is claiming that everyone should be able to cast a postal vote. Is it a form of discrimination that everyone above the age of 70 is allowed to cast their vote by post, but people who are younger and have fragile health are not allowed to do so?

In Dutch political tv programme Buitenhof Wim Voermans, Professor of Constitutional Law in Leiden, and Phon van den Biesen, the lawyer representing the Party for the Animals debated the issue, each from their own perspective. The ruling in the case will be given next week.
