“I understand that the appointment of Souguir was surprising, and a certain divisiveness caused, but it is time for the ranks to close. Sami Souguir will be on Thursday, January 3, to take an oath as ships”, so it sounds positive in Bracke.
Her explanation would be the chance at a rehabilitation of Christophe Peeters entirely ruled out. This is also apparent from the fact that Open Vld Gent her voordrachtsakte has already filed with the name of Sami Souguir, and not that of Christophe Peeters.

“everyone is free to go to the statutory commission, but we are sure that everything is correct is expired” said Bracke, who is so prepared showed to go in on the content of the letter. According to her, there is also no question of an irregular procedure. From her reaction it appears that the leadership of the party behind Souguir remains
Future mayor Mathias De Clercq, who are currently all acting exercises in the absence of Daniel Termont, tribute the past few days than again in silence. And also Sami Souguir themselves to refrain, as yet, of any comments.
