According to Luc Van Biesen of the Open VLD (Flemish Liberals), the detailed results of the general elections of last Sunday are showing that the influence of French-speaking politicians in Flanders is still growing and that a quick division of the unconstitutional electoral district B-H-V is needed. In the electoral district B-H-V (Brussels-Halle-Vilvoorde) Flanders was able to keep 9 parliamentary seats only because less French-speaking expats than usually were voting abroad. French-speaking expats consequently add their votes to the B-H-V listings to support the francophone influence in B-H-V. The Belgian Constitutional Court ruled in 2003 that the B-H-V voting district is in contradiction with the provincial definition of the electoral districts of Belgium. In this unconstitutional electoral district, French-speaking voters living in a Flemish province can vote on politicians living outside Flanders while this isn’t possible the other way around.
