Brussels Parliamentarian Juan Benjuema-Moreno.

Juan Benjuema-Moreno may be the name that doesn’t ring the bell. In the final election of 2019, he was elected as a political newcomer to the Brussels Parliament.

On Monday, another Flemish-Brussels candidate duo took a step forward. Jeremie Vaneeckhout When Nadia Nasic I want to lead Groen as a co-chair. It is not yet known if other candidates will appear.

Big name dropped out

The striking thing about Groen is that many leaders drop out of the presidential elections. Parliamentarian Kristof Calvo was the latest “big name” to announce that he would not compete. Earlier, Flanders faction leader Bjorn Luzoska, Chamber of Commerce faction leader Wooter de Vriend, and political director Bogdan Vanden Berge also announced that they would be the current chairs. According to political analysts, this seems to indicate that the party is internally divided and it is very difficult to find consensus figures.
