On May 25 the people of Belgium go to the polls to elect their 21 MEPs. Citizens from other EU states were able to register too and if you have done so, you can also take part in the vote. In the run-up to the election VRT’s expat TV show Fans of Flanders is putting six different Euro MPs in the spotlight. Each week a different Euro MP will face questions from an expat living in Belgium and hopefully that will help you decide who you’d like to vote for.
Veteran Flemish liberal Euro MP Annemie Neyts (Open VLD) is the only woman in this select group of Euro MPs. On May 14 Devrim Kucuk wants to hear more about the EU and its relations with the rest of the world, changing attitudes to new member states and the challenge facing the EU over Ukraine. Devrim Kucuk is a Turkish engineer, who has worked for Cisco since 2000 and has a never ending curiosity for international affairs.
Fans of Flanders is screened on Wednesdays on the OP12 TV channel at 8pm.It is repeated on the channel één on Saturdays at 11:15 am and on the canvas channel on Sundays at 9am and 8:15pm. The expat interviews with our candidates will also be available on the flandersnews and Fans of Flanders websites from Thursday onwards.
