In financial surroundings rumours are going round that Luc Coene is worrying he can’t become the next Governor of the Belgian National Bank anymore. Coene was using hard words against the N-VA (New Flemish Alliance) shortly before the elections, violating his neutral position as Vice Governor. The N-VA won the general elections of last Sunday with 28% of the votes causing an electoral landslide in Flanders.
Luc Coene , has violated this evening his neutral position as Vice Governor of the National Bank by making political statements on the Flemish television. Coene attacked the New-Flemish Alliance (N-VA), a young political party in favour of a Flemish republic. This unlawful activity of the Vice Governor adds another fact to the rapidly increasing list of democratic deteriorations in Belgium.
