The former rector of ULB has decided to devote himself entirely to the Covid-19 cell of the Walloon Region, of which he is the general delegate.
ANDvon Englert announced on Saturday his resignation from the “Communication and Societal Debate” unit within the interfederal task force responsible for vaccination against the coronavirus. The former rector of ULB has decided to devote himself entirely to the Covid-19 cell of the Walloon Region, of which he is the general delegate.
“In recent weeks, I have worked diligently and relentlessly at the federal task force level to develop a common communication plan, which was approved by the interministerial conference on 23 December. I have to admit that carrying out the operationalization of this plan is hardly compatible with my mission as general delegate of the Covid-19 cell in the Walloon Region ”, he explains in a press release.
“From the moment I have to choose, I see that I am more useful in my work in the Walloon Region where a formidable collegial dynamic is developing, in the concrete and with those who are on the ground every day. I therefore took the decision to resign at the head of the interfederal cell “Communication and Societal Debate”, hoping that the work that I have been able to carry out in recent weeks has been useful “, he adds. .
Yvon Englert finally underlines that he has not lost enthusiasm: “priority to the fight against the pandemic and the return to a normal life. With the vaccine, we’ll get there, ”he concludes.
