Opposition slams government for not enabling people with Covid to vote

The opposition ANO party has criticized the government for not finding a way to enable people currently in isolation with Covid to vote. This concerns around 10,000 people. Health Minister Vlastimil Válek said the government was working on an amendment to the law which would enable people with Covid to cast their ballot and hopes to see it approved and in force in time for the 2023 presidential elections. Close to 3,000 people with Covid were able to vote in the 2021 general elections for which the then-government organized special drive-in voting sites.
