Television maker Luk Alloo interviews a politician every day until election day, 33 in total. Freya Van den Bossche was allowed to take the lead. “If parties that want to get their hands dirty, not the extremes, give each other more favor, then I think people will also start to believe more in politics,” she says. And Minister Frank Vandenbroucke would compare them to… Romelu Lukaku.

1 minute

Van den Bossche is given one minute by Alloo to introduce himself to the (young) readers. “When things are not going well for you, you can rely on someone. We think that is important: that there is support for you and that it is affordable.”

300 billion euros

Suppose you were suddenly allowed to spend a bag of money worth 300 billion euros? “If you can suddenly pay off our country’s debts, you can spend an additional 6 billion every year.”

It’s been said

In 2005 you said you would like to become a war reporter, do you stick to that? “If it had not been for politics, there is a very good chance that I would have gone into journalism.”

Short questions

What would 18-year-old Freya say to you? “That I could say my thoughts a little more frankly every now and then.”

The truth

Do you think the Flemish government has done a good job? “No, take your welfare seriously: things have been going from bad to worse there for twenty years.”

Why

Why should citizens vote for Vooruit? “Vooruit is the party that cares about purchasing power. That means people have enough left over at the end of the month.”
