Didier Gosuin said that this no doubt will please the New Flemish Alliance. Gosuin is minister of employment and economy in Brussels and represents the DéFI party (Democratic Federalist Independent). He was interviewed on Tuesday (17 May) by the TV channel RTL.
He was questioned particularly about the state of infrastructure, such as the tunnels, in Brussels. Gosuin was of the opinion that the ministers who had been in charge of the Department of Public Works in Brussels had mismanaged the department over the years.
“It is a policy of overall political responsibility. All parties have ignored our infrastructure and we see it today as regards the prisons. For nearly thirty years, politicians have mismanaged the state. The ruling parties have been given the false illusion that everything was well managed,” Gosuin said.
“The Belgian state is cracking everywhere,” he continued, “and of course this is no doubt pleases those who want it to break definitely into parts, for example the New Flemish Alliance (N-VA).”
In his opinion, it’s necessary to ensure “a strong federal government that assumes responsibility for justice, security and taxation” and not “a rogue federalism that would lead to the independence of Flanders.”
