We reported the other day on gross irregularities during last week’s municipal elections in Rotterdam. Now the PVV is protesting similar violations in the Hague. Our Flemish correspondent VH has compiled a report based on articles in De Telegraaf and De Trouw, and has added videos:
PVV demands research into voting in the Hague
The Hague PVV leader Sietse Fritsma demands that Mayor Josias van Aartsen (VVD) conduct an investigation into irregularities during the local elections in The Hague. According to the Fritsma the PVV has videos of several irregularities. The party has put some videos on YouTube:
Four of the videos are below, with an explanatory description under each:
Polling station Schildershoek: Here we clearly see how three people consult each other in the voting booth [which is illegal]. After completing the ballot-paper, the woman in the red coat checks the ballot. She then also puts the ballot-paper of another person in the ballot box.
Polling station Boerenplein: After completing his own ballot-paper, a voter walks into the booth beside his to advise the woman in the voting booth, and can freely do so.

Polling station Koningin Beatrixschool: An employee of the polling station (with purple shirt) gives a man in the voting booth advice and remains there a long time. The voter subsequently advises the woman in the voting booth next to him.
Polling station Koningin Beatrixschool: A voter walks around the polling station with multiple ballot-papers and can do this freely.
The Hague PVV leader Sietse Fritsma calls these videos shocking. “You can see clearly that there was chaos in the polling stations in the Hague, and that nobody acted on this.” The Hague Mayor Josias van Aartsen should now quickly investigate the scale on which these irregularities occurred, and how this could have happened.
