At the invitation of the preformers Paul Magnette (PS) and Bart De Wever (N-VA), the co-chairs of Ecolo, Rajae Maouane and Jean-Marc Nollet, as well as the representatives of Groen, agreed to meet the duo of missionaries royals this Tuesday. A mark of good will, in one way or the other, which will undoubtedly not go further …

‘The in-depth discussions, lasting almost 4 hours, with the missionaries made it possible to identify some interesting proposals, particularly in social matters, such as increasing pensions or a series of short-term measures to improve manage the health crisis’, recounts Ecolo in a press release issued in the early evening …

Before getting to the heart of the matter: ‘These exchanges have highlighted important gaps and positions that are too far apart in terms of values ​​and proposals,’ says the French-speaking environmental party.

‘Not up to the stakes’

Thus, Ecolo considers that certain elements of the proposal put on the table by the duo Magnette-De Wever ‘do not meet the challenges’, nor the expectations ‘of a growing part of the population’.

‘The climate, energy and mobility proposals are insufficient when they should be the backbone of government action’, summarize the environmentalists.

The Green Party has also been critical of the precision of certain elements raised during the discussions, in particular in terms of ‘fairer taxation’ and ‘political renewal’.

Without the greens …

Finally, the institutional aspect addressed by the duo of preformers did not find favor in Ecolo’s eyes either. ‘The pattern that emerges from the proposals (…) will not make our federal state more efficient, more understandable and more democratic, which is nevertheless necessary.’

And the co-presidents of Ecolo, Rajae Maouane and Jean-Marc Nollet, conclude: ‘The political options presented by the royal missionaries constitute a basis for a formula without the Greens, and not with them.’

Already very slim before the meeting on Tuesday, the chances of soon seeing the N-VA, the PS and Ecolo sit in the same government has shrunk like a grain of salt …
