Union of the French-speaking people
The Union of the French-speaking people ( UF ) is a list of Cartel presented by certain French-speaking parties to the provincial and regional elections in the Province of Brabant-Fleming, more particularly in the administrative Arrondissement of Hall-Vilvorde, where many French-speaking people live.
Flemish regional electionsAt the time of the Flemish regional elections of June 2004, the single outgoing elected official, Christian Van Eycken (MR-FDF, burgomaster of Linkebeek), were re-elected.
Provincial elections of Brabant-FlemishAt the time of the provincial elections of October 2000, the UF obtained 6 elected officials, that is to say Michel Dandoy (MR-PRL, communal adviser with Dilbeek), Eric Poswick (MR-PRL, Overijse), Jean-Pierre Without (MR-FDF, alderman with Wezembeek-Oppem), Dominique Houtart (MR-PRL, Kraainem), François van Hoobrouck d' Aspre (MR-PRL, burgomaster of Wezembeek-Oppem), Francine Collet-Vandersmissen (MR-FDF, échevine with Linkebeek).
At the beginning, the UF gathered FDF (current component of the reforming Mouvement, MR.), PRL (current component of the reforming Mouvement, MR.) and PSC (current humanistic democratic Center, CDH), but in 2004 the PS joined them.
The party Ecolo always refused to enter this type of trust and invited to vote for its counterparts Flemish ecologists (Groen!) as well with the provincial and regional elections as with communal, going until refusing, in 1997, the setting-up by militants Ecologist of a local group with Rhode-Saint-Genesis. However, the position of the French-speaking ecologists evolved to the participation in a French-speaking trust, which was concretized in several communes at the time of the communal elections of 2006.
Communal elections and of the councils of CPASAt the communal level, the situation is more complex, the situation differs from one commune to another and one election to the following one:
- either only one list of French-speaking trust
- or a " list bourgmestre" sometimes gathering Dutch-speaking French-speaking people and
- is lists of political parties.
The situation differs considerably between the six common to facilities, where as well the French-speaking people as the Dutch-speaking ones take part of office in communal management, and other common to French-speaking minorities, where the French-speaking elected officials are systematically isolated of any coalition.
After the communal elections of 2000 with Vilvorde, the relative majority CVP-SP-Agalev however discharged two French-speaking elected officials, without naming some only one as alderman, to assure the absolute majority and thus to avoid a coalition nondesired between two greater parties, CVP and VLD. These two elected officials were excluded by the FDF.
