At 39 years old, CD&V Halle has opted for a young, sporty party leader. The party hopes to convince voters in October with an accessible program full of ambition and substantively strong projects.
As a true Hall resident, Busselot is very proud to be on the CD&V Halle list for his hometown. “Halle, is a special place for me. I grew up here from a young age and seeing the basilica appear on the horizon always gives me the feeling of really coming home. That makes me truly proud to be on CD&V Halle’s list for this beautiful city,” says Pieter Busselot.
Pieter Busselot first took part in the municipal elections in 2012 and became an alderman for the first time in 2016 at a young age. He is currently the first alderman for the city of Halle and a parliamentary assistant in the Flemish parliament. In short, there is no shortage of youthful experience.
CD&V Halle wants to put itself in the spotlight in a different way. “Our campaign images will be based on those of a dynamic cycling team. Because when we think of cycling, we think of a folk story close to and among the people, of the hard work and dedication during those Flemish classics, of a team that works together for one goal. In this way, we also want to do politics in an accessible way, close to people with a clear vision,” explains Pieter Busselot.
“With this dynamic and popular team, we will continue to work on an accessible program full of ambition and substantively strong projects. If we are working on a program for Halle, it will not be limited to the center. Because then we also talk about Essenbeek, Lembeek, Buizingen, Breedhout, Sint rochus,… Each with its own character and traditions, but where working together means strengthening each other.” emphasizes Pieter Busselot.
