all 52 councillors versprak is in the oath ‘I swear the obligations of my term loyalty". Termont, brown burnt after a skiing holiday, felt like a fish in the water. He has also 12 years of the council presided over, he knows the ropes. After exactly 29 minutes he had his job on it. “I wish you all here a lot of success in this council, I hope that there will be many substantive debates will be, the Inhabitants earn that,” he said. And then with a wink: “I have done here, I have been going to the reception.” Termont received a standing ovation from the entire hall, and flowers of Zeneb Besafia, the next three years the council will preside. Termont remained sit neatly, on the rear benches of the council chamber.‘Prominent role’ is empty
The swearing-in went remarkably smoothly. In alphabetical order put all council members tidy their oath, with their right hand raised. Everyone got applause, only for Christophe Peeters took that applause is strikingly longer than for other councillors. The way in which he is pushed aside, the Inhabitants on all the parties around, clearly still cross. And are ‘prominent role’ is seen as a blank box. But Peeters takes up his mandate as just a council member so courageous. He sits at the center of the first row, flanked by Stephanie D’Hose, and Sven Taeldeman.
