There laid the councilmen and the aldermen take an oath. When Joost Arents as independent the oath, there was booing from the audience. All that was soon drowned out by a loud applause of the majority in the city council. Arents went against the view of his in the meantime, ex-party N-VA in coalition with Open Vld and Together, to the dismay of a lot of Forza-voters because Forza is way out of the city council was held.Conniving way
