Vlaams Belang has placed MP Steven Creyelman in fourth place on the East Flemish list for the Chamber. He had been discredited before.

Steven Creyelman stepped aside as chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Army Purchases at the end of last year, after his brother came under controversy.

He came under fire in the aftermath of the revelations about his brother Frank Creyelman. He allowed himself to be paid for years by a Chinese agent to influence Belgian policy. This emerged after research by The Financial Times, Der Spiegel and Le Monde. He would also have worked through his brother for this.

It has not been proven that Steven Creyelman was actually aware of his brother’s Chinese contacts. The Vlaams Belang politician himself says that he was misled.

Vlaams Belang announced its complete election lists on Sunday, after the party previously announced the top places on all election lists for the ballot box of June 9, 2024.

“We have opted for a new talent in each top three,” says chairman Tom Van Grieken. “But there are also many new faces further down the list. We want to offer an entire generation of political promises the opportunity to prove themselves.”
