Wouter Beke, the Flemish Minister of Health, tenders his resignation

His deputy in the Chamber, Steven Matheï, will have to give up his seat in the hemicycle because Wouter Beke will resume his place as federal deputy.

The 44-year-old deputy was the first substitute on the CD&V list in Limburg in the federal elections on May 26, 2019 and replaced Wouter Beke when he became a minister in the Flemish government. He sees his mandate ending prematurely.

Wouter Beke’s resignation is difficult for me“, reacted Steven Mathei on Twitter. “First and foremost for Wouter as a person and a colleague. I am also grateful for the opportunities that have been given to me. I was a deputy body and soul with a lot of commitment. Thanks to everyone who supported me“.

As a deputy, Steven Matheï was mainly active in the finance committee. He himself referred to his work on the reform of tax benefits for football players and estate agents.
