Belgium’s Politics: God lead me to vote for the right party

belgium mapBRUSSELS, May 09, 2014 - May 25, 2014, Belgians including foreigners who are qualified to vote, will go down to the polls and vote for the new EU Parliament, also scheduled to take place the same day is the Federal and regional elections. Voting period in Belgium gives me a lot of worries and headache, the fact that if I fail to vote, I can’t escape a fine. Since I am not ready to pay that fine, reluctantly I have to go to the polls unhappy to vote.

As federal state with a multi-party political system, a foreigner, especially an African, casting a vote needs to find the right party to vote for, but is there any right party in Belgium for foreigners?

Belgium is a country facing linguistic and cultural problems between the country's regions, Flemish-speaking Flanders and French-speaking Wallonia; it therefore makes sense without hesitation to say that none of the political parties is in of favour of foreigners. Let me summarize it, Belgians don’t like foreigners.

Foreigners, especially Africans qualified to vote, are needed during elections time to facilitate winning chances of politicians, but after elections, no one remembers an African any longer. Belgium’s politics, especially in Antwerp, is much like former South Africa’s Apartheid. The Flemish don’t have much to do with Africans even though they colonized Congo, that’s the reason integration is the poorest in the Flemish community.

The political climate in Flemish regions is not good for real Belgians, the French –Speaking Walloon, let alone foreigners. Africans in Belgium, especially those in the Flemish community only pray to get their Belgium passport and leave the country. Hundreds of parents, soon as they get their Belgium passports leave the country to other countries with better integration and where professionals, in regard to colour enjoy equal opportunities. “Our children have no future in Antwerp,” says and African and a mother of three.

Emigrating from Belgium might be very good for the Belgians, since they have no interest in foreigners but it’s very bad for the country. It reduces a country’s economic opportunities. Parents who have taken their children out of the country, claim many of the Africans after studying, are denied the right job. It’s hard to accept such statements but the fact is that there are many institutions in Belgium reserved for only Belgians. Hardly one sees a black working there.

African in possession of Belgium passport is considered an African, that’s fine, but since we work and pay our taxes like any other Belgian, we shouldn’t be used only to increase or generate votes for the benefit of greedy and selfish politicians. As parents, if we couldn’t get the chance to study in higher institutions, our children who did shouldn’t be denied the right jobs.

In the name of tolerance, I don’t agree with Holland on many issues but I admire the country when I watch programs of some of their black journalists. Belgium should free its mind from colonial mentality and emulate Holland, because Holland and other European countries are far ahead of them.
