Background

Poland prepares to hold presidential elections, scheduled for 10 May 2020, during the coronavirus pandemic. The government insists that it is possible to observe democratic procedures. On the other hand, media reported that voters are expected to cast their ballots by post and include personal data in the envelopes. Is this an additional step in the process of dismantling democracy? Is Brussels concerned? Is the process reversible?
