Understanding the reasons for obligatory voting

Published on 07/05/2014

El Khadraoui is a traffic specialist and since congestions have become a part of daily life, Valentino wants to know what the EU should do about it.

It’s the fourth of six episodes in a series of expats quizzing leading Flemish candidates for the European Parliament.

Georgio Valentino is an expat of mixed Greek and Puerto Rican descent.

Having grown up in Florida (USA), he also wonders what obligatory voting is good for and he gets a straight answer to his question: “In the US lower-class people don’t participate in democracy.”

If you want to find out more, watch tonight’s episode of Fans of Flanders on the VRT television channel OP12 at 8pm.

The episode will be repeated on TV on Eén next Saturday, May 10, at 11:15am and on Canvas next Sunday, May 11, at 9am and 8:15pm.

The video will also be available on the website of Fans of Flanders or via Flandersnews, on this page, where the video will be released later today. / Expatica
