Among the substitutes, we find in particular Viviane Dessart, mayor of Visé and “the most experienced of all”. Also note Laura Iker, mayor of Esneux and Jean Winand, professor at the University of Liège and member of the Royal Academy of Belgium.

Other personalities, particularly from the world of entrepreneurship, will get involved in the electoral adventure. “We didn’t wait for farmers to block the roads to worry about them,” declares Diana Nikolic, who is delighted to lead an “enthusiastic list ready to straighten out Wallonia”. “Our goal is to increase our role within regional policy, particularly in terms of employment, training and mobility,” she adds. Because we have all seen the state of the city of Liège, in particular, with the current ministers in charge.”
