After the swearing in, king Philippe spoke of Ham and sat night for the first time in the Flemish Parliament. “I’ll put in a call to our young people,” he said in his speech. “Do not lose hope. We will give you more than you will ever need to have to make the transition to a circular economy a reality. It is your hard work today at the school, we have in the fight against climate change will win out.”

A large part of his speech was reserved for the integration. “We will be the warmth and a feeling of security to provide it to all who are born, grow, live, work, and live. But, if you’re here for a new life to build and fully subscribe to in our community. Those who want to be a part of our community and deserve all of the opportunities available. However, we do expect everyone to contribute.”

Ham and gruwt to say on the issue of racism. “I make it a point of honour with this government, discrimination in any form whatsoever to deal with them. And that’s only if we, as a community, as well as the individual is able to make. The result of this neutrality by the government, and the community, and the more stringent terms and conditions of approval for the communities of faith and schools, the minister of Justice and the enforcement … It’s all there for you to focus on the freedom of a society to maintain it.”


the arm wrestling on budgetary data:

A begrotingstabel, the government will pass next week, to present, to the detriment of the opposition parties, which figures show. “Everything is, of course, the fiscal picture is, ‘ said Ham, in his regeerverklaring. But a lot of details about the fiscal picture were not there in the statement.

“I will be to you next week and happy to explain what is the fiscal path exactly to switch it off. I will be the president of the parliament, asking for a committee to be convened. Today, I especially want to be aware of the importance of the project for the community, where we are with this government,” said Ham.

But it was not to the liking of the opposition parties as Vlaams belang, Groen, SP.A-and the LABOUR party. They demanded in unison that the government, with the number of the pins would come out.

“Loss of face for the government,”

you will be no budgetary figures and so. To the chagrin of the opposition. “What are we actually doing?” asked Green party leader Björn Rzoska (to come). “This is too crazy for words,” he said. “It was lots of fun with the houses of parliament. I haven’t really had much desire to tell you that we are not debating the figures,” said Rzoska. The parliament is debating and will vote on Friday on the regeerverklaring trust and confidence in the government.

“It’s very difficult to get the parliament to vote on the plan of the government, as we have no numbers to get in. The government has, time and life. The Septemberverklaring is a Oktoberverklaring now. This is a real loss of face for the government,” said the Flemish Interest party leader, Chris Smith. “A regeerverklaring be budgetary data, it is like cooking without salt and pepper,” says Smith.

you can get A similar sound with the LABOUR party leader, Jos D’haese: “It was hallucinatory. The we are against such are to be distributed, but to clarify, the money isn’t there. It is a contempt to the parliament. You can’t just take a vote on a coalition agreement, without a specific figure in it?

This is a government of big words, but empty pockets,” said Rousseau, who speaks of a ” slap-in-the-face’ of the parliament and an early start to the government:-Ham. “How can we possibly have a decent debate, when all of the numbers are missing? Now, we need to talk about the meaningless words of a Ham.”

IN THE SP.A it’s not just for what it is. Rousseau has a president, Liesbeth Homans, in an e-mail is said to be one of the group’s begrotingstabellen for Friday and want to see it, “if we ask for a postponement of the debate.

Also, for the Vlaams belang has been a debate in the parliament is not much sense in that, parliament does not have the begrotingstabellen. “I want to be there with you, urging you to have the budgetary figures in the government, and in sufficient time to meet with the parliament to get this knowledge is to be able to debate it this week”, says deputy Chris Smith to the Homans to know. The Flemish Interest party leader, asks “whether it is for a parliament that claims to be one of the main tasks is the control of the government, and serious, but is useful for discussion to take place? “
