Shortly after it became known this morning that an agreement had been reached between the Vivaldi parties, gave Ward Vergote, mayor of Moorslede in West Flanders, that he will no longer renew his membership at Open VLD. “I really don’t agree with this coalition.”
Ward Vergote, a member of Open VLD for over twenty years, and mayor of Moorslede, is very disappointed in the formation of a government. He announced via Twitter on Tuesday morning that he would be no party from now on.
“The new government and the role that Open VLD plays for me in it is a bridge too far for me,” he told our editorial team. In the run-up to the party chairman elections of Open VLD, Vergote nevertheless supported Egbert Lachaert. ‘He promised that there was going to be a right turn. Lachaert has now made a turn of 180 degrees. This is a left-wing government. I cannot understand this and I am very disappointed ‘, says Vergote.
He will not be renewing his membership card at Open VLD. ‘I am no party. Currently, no national party in Belgium can charm me. I also have no ambition to mean anything nationally. ‘
Vergote’s decision has no influence on local politics in Moorslede. There, the liberal-minded politicians are part of the Vision party. ‘I was one of the founders of Open VLD Moorslede. Soon I will discuss what we will do with Open VLD Moorslede together with the other party members. Within Vision we have an excellent gang with whom we try to continue the good work locally. ‘
