he tackles Georges-Louis Bouchez, “the dream of the MR is to reform a government with them”

Invited on the set of RTL info Signatures this Wednesday, Paul Magnette reacted to recent Flemish polls, placing the N-VA and Vlaams Belang in the lead, with 45% of the vote. For the mayor of Charleroi, this is a “worrying” situation.

“It’s worrying, indeed. It worries me a lot that a far-right party, one of the toughest in Europe, is 25%. If they ally with the nationalists of the N-VA, it can make a majority in Flanders which could paralyze the country,” he said.

For the president of the PS, “in Belgium, we are not immune”. “We must remember that these parties are dangerous for democracy and that we must fight for them to be democratic parties in power. We will never argue with the extreme right,” adds Magnette.

And he did not hesitate to address a small tackle to the president of MR Georges-Louis Bouchez, who says he is open to the N-VA: “We saw the love between Georges-Louis Bouchez and Theo Francken during a debate recently. The dream of the MR is to reform a government with them”.
