N-VA MP Sander Loones already points to Alexia Bertrand’s first mistakes: “His first document as Secretary of State is a lie”

Sander Loones perfects his reputation a little more for having a sharp knowledge of the files. After highlighting the errors in the budget documents which forced the Secretary of State for the Budget for Consumer Protection Eva De Bleeker to resign, the N-VA MP now points to shortcomings in the new version of the tables sent by Alexia Bertrand who took his place.

This is what the former (briefly) Minister of Defense confided to the microphone of LN24 during the program “Les Couloirs de la Chambre”. “I wish good luck to Alexia Bertrand in her new role”he first clarified, “I had high hopes but we have just received the fourth version of the tables. And it still contains errors.”

“People must be able to trust their government”

If he does not want to add to it, the N-VA deputy believes that the first steps of the new Secretary of State for the Budget do not bode well for the future: “I note that his first document sent as Secretary of State is a false document, which is in conflict with what the European Commission asks us”, he points out before attacking the government of Alexander De Croo in a more general way, “In this period of economic and social crisis, people must be able to trust their government… But here, the government says something one day and says the opposite the next. That’s not correct.”

If Loones was not tender with the new Secretary of State Open VLD, the political journalist of La Libre Frédéric Chardon considers for his part that the intervention of the deputy N-VA was rather “sober and fair play”.

In the hot seat since multiple errors in the budget documents had been noted, Eva De Bleeker had submitted her resignation last Friday as Secretary of State for the Budget and Consumer Protection at 4 p.m. Alexia Bertrand replaced her at short notice, taking the oath before the King even before De Bleeker spoke.
