It will be Mr De Wever’s 4th term as party leader. Under his stewardship N-VA has grown from being a small party into by far the largest political force in Flanders.
Mr De Wever had just one challenger, the Chairman of the N-VA branch in the Limburg municipality of Diepenbeek Geert Vertongen.
Speaking after his re-election Mr De Wever told the party faithful that “I can reassure that I am not planning to remain Party Chairman for ever.”
The Mayor of Antwerp went on to thank his challenger Geert Vertongen who took 9% of votes. Bart De Wever new mandate runs for another three years.
