For the president of the French-speaking liberals, Georges-Louis Bouchez, this decision not to appeal is “totally incomprehensible and is a new manifestation of the communitarization of our society by the Brussels left”.
“I ask the Brussels government to take its responsibilities by opposing this choice”, added the president of the Reform Movement.
For his part, the Brussels deputy PTB Youssef Handichi, said he was “relieved” and spoke of a “first victory”. For the far-left formation, “we must congratulate the management committee for this inclusive and courageous decision, it is now up to the government to act by confirming the decision”.
According to Youssef Handichi, “the parties in government have the opportunity to strongly reduce discrimination and promote the emancipation of women, which requires work. They must therefore ensure that women workers are finally assessed on their skills. and the quality of the service provided, rather than their appearance and their religion, by changing the working regulations of STIB and other public bodies, as Actiris had done in 2015. “
“The government must tackle all the forms of discrimination which are a real scourge in Brussels, given the lack of jobs and the competition that this causes on the private market,” he said.
