Coaster. Jean-Luc Crucke, who had announced that he was leaving politics, did not present his candidacy for the post of judge at the Constitutional Court. He therefore remains a Walloon deputy. What to be free to run in 2023 for the presidency of the MR at the end of the mandate of Georges-Louis Bouchez? “Nothing is impossible“, he replied to the editorial staff of La Libre Belgique.
As a reminder, the former Walloon budget minister resigned last January just after having his decree voted “for a fairer tax”. The text had created a deep rupture within the liberal party and in particular with the line of its president, Georges-Louis Bouchez. “My beliefs no longer fully align with my party line“, had then justified Jean-Luc Crucke during his resignation.
Are they today? In any case, it would seem that some liberals regret his vision. This is how Jean-Luc Crucke argues his choice to stay in politics. “JI have the feeling that if I leave the political field today, some could experience it as a form of disappointment or even, for some, as a form of abandonment“, can we read in the Libre Belgique.
