Thousands of supporters of the far-right Flemish party Vlaams Belang protested in Brussels this Sunday against the formation of the new Belgian executive branch after talks between the possible coalition had progressed in the last few days and thus broke with almost 650 government days in the meantime.
The Belgian police have said that around 4,500 vehicles were brought together at the demonstration in Brussels, in which an average of three people per person were traveling, reported the state news agency Belga.
Given the obvious possibility of ending nearly 650 days of interim government, Vlaams Belang chairman Tom Van Grieken has shown his disapproval, seeing it as “unacceptable” that the new executive “left” is stronger than the government’s results of the 2019 parliamentary elections.
“On May 26, the Flemish people sent a clear signal that the leadership should be more flamenco and right-wing. Now the opposite is happening and that is unacceptable,” he said during the rally in the Heisel district in the north of Brussels.
