Flanders oppressed since 1830

Flemish lawyers question legality Federal elections

In an official press release published today, the OVB, the association of all Flemish lawyers are questioning the legality of the next federal elections and are asking for an independent judicial body to examine the legality of it. The reason is a judgement of the Constitutional Court. It judged that the existence of a certain electoral district ( BHV ) as a constituency was in contradiction with the explicitly provincial definition of the electoral districts. In this unconstitutional electoral district, French-speaking voters living in a Flemish province can vote on politicians living outside Flanders.
