Adrien Dolimont officially succeeds Jean-Luc Crucke: a surprise guest during the family photo of the new team (video)

Adrien Dolimont (MR), the new Walloon Minister of Budget, Finance, Airports and Sports Infrastructures, was sworn in on Thursday afternoon in front of the Walloon Parliament meeting in plenary session. During the traditional photo shoot, his child joined him … A real family photo, for once.

He succeeds in this post Jean-Luc Crucke, who for his part returned to parliamentary ranks before his probable appointment to the Constitutional Court at the end of the summer. Contested by the regional deputies of his own party at the end of last year following his draft decree for a fairer tax, Jean-Luc Crucke announced his resignation on Monday, considering in particular no longer to be in line with the orientations of the MR.

The next day, the president of the French-speaking liberals, Georges-Louis Bouchez, presented his successor. Aged 33, Adrien Dolimont was until now Alderman of Finance and President of the Ham-sur-Heure-Nalinnes CPAS. After taking the oath, the latter is expected at the office of the Minister of the Budget for an official handover.

“I realize the responsibilities that are mine. That’s why we have to work with method and rigor”, he explained to us. The budget, however, promises to be complicated for the next few years. “It is not a poisoned gift, but an opportunity. As Jean-Luc said, Wallonia’s financial situation is not in good shape … It is worrying, so we really have to take things in hand now.“.
