Bouchez wants Belgium to become ‘leader in autonomous car’
The MR’s president, Georges-Louis Bouchez, surprised more than one citizen when he declared that Belgium should become the leader in autonomous vehicle technologies and the first country to fully allow self-driving cars on the road. The young new head of the party wishes to broaden the political debate to new topics.
On Sunday, during the MR’s annual greetings party, president Georges-Louis Bouchez surprised the crowds by declaring that Belgium should push for self-driving mobility development. The party’s head has a fundamental objective that “combines mobility, environment, and quality of life”.
10 new topics
Mr. Bouchez wishes to organize substantial debates on ten new topics, including the autonomous car. “All political parties talk like they’re still in the 80s,” notes the president. “He was won over by the idea, by the real alternative embodied by the autonomous car, as well as by the technical evolution that it is,” confides a relative.
Some see in that statement the influence of the new MR chief of staff and Director of the Jean Gol Center, Axel Miller. After all, until last April, Miller was still at the head of D’Ieteren. However, the man in question refutes any allegations and hammers that Bouchez is in charge.
