Open VLD wants to scrap the vehicle inspection as it currently exists and put the annual inspection in the hands of garage owners. This is one of the statements approved today at the party congress in Antwerp.
Today, the Liberals are holding their third in a series of four conferences on the topic of freedom in Kinnepolis. Party members had the opportunity to form the party platform for the 2024 elections on the basis of immediately revised data.
Freedom is primarily interpreted by Open VLD as self-determination and less extensive government. A car inspection, for example, is a service that the private sector, according to liberals, can perfectly perform. Just like in the Netherlands, Open VLD wants to switch to a system of garage owners that are recognized and responsible for annual inspection.

The private sector should also play a greater role in public transportation, according to the Liberals. The monopolies of De Lijn, STIB and NMBS must disappear, so that private players can also become active.
“Two weeks left to save companies from ruin”
“Every day I receive signals from companies large and small that their energy bills are getting too high. If companies start closing in a few weeks, we will cut our economic fabric,” Open VLD President Egbert Lachart said on the sidelines of the party conference. Yesterday the federal government came up with measures for families, and the Flemish government can no longer be left behind in corporate initiatives.”
But Open VLD differs profoundly in opinion with alliance partner N-VA. “Open VLD is blindly staring at the multi-year estimate, in which a 1.5 billion euro shortfall has been forecast for next year,” was heard last week by an excellent N-VA. “That has now been reduced to 450 million euros, so Open VLD considers itself rich and considers this difference as free money.”
“We’re not asking for budget scrapping,” Lachert says. We are only asking to take action now, for one winter, worth €500m to €1bn. Then we can work towards a balanced budget again in 2027. Remember, the federal government should have helped families keep books much worse.”
According to the Liberals, the N-VA places great emphasis on making a difference with the large federal deficit. “But people aren’t aware of that right now,” says Lachart.
Although he prefers not to respond to it PollsThe chairman is pleased with the result of Friday’s poll on Saturday. His party again got 11.1 percent, compared to 9.3 percent in a previous poll.
“9 percent was a psychological blow, so I think that result is hopeful,” he says. We still have work to renew the party. We still need a lot of new ideas and new people.”
