National election debate in English

Eindhoven News is organising an election debate in English at the city hall in Eindhoven on 16 November at 18:00 hrs. The candidates from parties possibly forming the next government and candidates from the incumbent parties will be present.


Like any other citizens, internationals have many questions about the upcoming national election. Think about topics like inflation, taxation, housing issues, the 30% ruling, immigration policy and more. The number of internationals with a vote in the Brainport region has increased significantly. That is why Eindhoven News is organizing this English spoken debate at the city hall of Eindhoven. It is open and accessible for anyone who would like to visit.

The following questions and many more will be addressed during the debate.

  • Is it right to convert agricultural land to neighbourhoods to solve the housing crisis? What are the ecological implications of doing so?
  • Should health insurance deductibles be abolished? If so, how does it affect premiums?
  • What do parties propose to deal with the demand for daycare for children?
  • Should families of refugees be allowed to live in the Netherlands? Which parties support that, which don’t?
  • What are the standpoints of the parties about taxation and future tax reforms?
  • Should other countries be welcome to join the European Union? What are the connotations?
  • How will the changes to the 30% ruling affect the Dutch economy? How do political parties intend to deal with reverberations?
  • Is it acceptable for the government to keep an eye on the content of religious teachings in the places of worship?
