200,000 people must get ID card information altered

The 200,000 residents of the 7 new Flemish municipalities that have been formed by municipal mergers will have to go to their local town halls to get the information on their identity cards modified after all. The local Mayors had hoped that the name of the municipality contained in the data on the ID card’s chip could be changed automatically. However, this appears not to be the case.
