“The liberal family is available to start negotiations on this in order to form a government with the three classic political families and N-VA,” it sounds.
The extended party board of Open VLD met on Saturday morning, after N-VA chairman Bart De Wever further increased the pressure on the Flemish liberals on Friday evening in the studios of VTM Nieuws and Terzake. But Open VLD does not budge. “The economic and institutional content that N-VA and PS put forward is still very far from our vision and needs to be adjusted,” it sounds.
In addition, the link with the French-speaking MR remains intact. “The liberal family is available to start negotiations on this in order to form a government with the three classic political families (liberals, socialists and Christian Democrats, ed.) And N-VA.” According to Open VLD, this broad composition is necessary, “in view of the major challenges facing our country”.
