Several days ago, the Dutch PVV party published a program with several anti-Islamic measures including the closure of mosques and a ban on the Quran.
Now, without getting into the actual political discussion, it seems this call is prima facie contradictory to the Dutch constitution, Article 1. Even if it isn't, suppose for the sake of the question that it is.
My questions are:
- Is the adoption of such a platform by a political party an illegal act? An unconstitutional act?
- Is it technically possible for individuals/for the executive to challenge acts, political programs or political organizations on these grounds in the Dutch courts? In EU courts / institutions?
- Is the Dutch government (the executive branch) charged with dealing with activity challenging/undermining the constitution?
- Please do not answer with a denunciation of the platform or support of it, I obviously have my own opinions but I am interested in the "how the system works" part of this issue.
- This is a question about the Netherlands, not about other legal settings or abstract/moral considerations.
- Note that according to Wikipedia,
The constitution prohibits the judiciary to test laws and treaties against the constitution, as this is considered a prerogative of the legislature. Thus there is no constitutional court in the Netherlands etc.
