Bart Somers: We focus on content, not on the puppets
Elections, Open Vld, slide for the elections of 26 may not be a candidate-prime minister and candidate prime minister. "We have a good team of candidates. If the ball is in our camp, we will take our responsibility. But for us in the first place to what we want to do and not to who's going to do," said Open Vld president Gwendolyn Rutten. In addition, the next Flemish government, according to Open Vld flip to the liberal model of society such as Mechelen and other "blue" cities that apply.

The Flemish liberals gather today in Mechelen for their third just-do-day. ‘A country that works together and lives’ is the theme. The federal minister of Asylum and Migration, Maggie De Block is there to talk about its migration policy. In addition, discuss the party about her plans, does Sihame El Kaouakibi her 'maiden speech' reflects and Guy Verhofstadt about Europe.

Yesterday it became known that the CD&V, Hilde Crevits, to for slide as a candidate minister-president. Previously had N-VA her pawns for the post of prime minister and president already been floated. Open Vld, get not along in that strategy, and the slide was not a candidate-minister-president. "We have a lot of excellent candidates. We are a strong team. And if the ball is in our camp, we will definitely take our responsibility," said partijvoorzitster Rutten.

"We concentrate not on the figures, but on the content of the story," adds Mechels head Bart Somers. "The content is important. For us it is the policy, to solutions that work and people perspective.”

‘Mechels model for Flanders

According to Bart Somers would be the Flemish government, the liberal model of society that, among other things in Mechelen is to be applied should follow. That ‘Mechels model names other liberal mayors in Kortrijk, Ghent, Ostend, Tongeren and Aarschot is already over. The foundations of that society are clear: a firm security and migration policy and equal opportunities for all on the basis of clear rules (such as the basic principles of equality of man and woman). “It is a story of rights and obligations, of chances to give and take, not alongside but with each other life,” says Somers.

“Our liberal approach should be the guiding principle for the Flemish samenlevingsbeleid,” says Somers. “For us that is absolutely essential. Let's clear about this. A government with liberals is a government road of the polarization, away from the stigmatization and generalized. A government that never racism and discrimination trivializes or people in boxes is.”
