VoorU’s Strategic Vision: Strengthening Flanders’ Role in Europe with Marta Barandiy

The VoorU political party in Belgium, launched by Els Ampe, is a fresh alternative in the Belgian political landscape, particularly as the country heads towards the European Parliament elections 2024. 

VoorU advocates for what can be described as “liberal social reform,” focusing on individual freedom, entrepreneurship and reducing bureaucratic constraints that stifle innovation and personal freedoms.

Els Ampe, a key figure in the party, emphasizes VoorU’s commitment to addressing practical issues directly affecting citizens, such as mobility, safety, and public service efficiency, aiming to engage voters disillusioned with the traditional party politics in Belgium.

Marta Barandiy is another pivotal figure in the VoorU political movement, symbolizing the party’s dedication to promoting Flemish cause within the EU. Her involvement underscores VoorU’s commitment to fostering broader connections beyond Flanders’ and Belgium’s borders, proposing policies that are not only locally beneficial but also advantageous in a broader European context.

Her role involves leveraging her experience and network to enhance VoorU’s policy propositions, particularly in areas concerning security and defense, international relations and European Union affairs. This strategic focus in the European Parliament elections, highlights VoorU’s readiness to represent Flemish interests effectively at the European level.

Marta Barandiy can significantly strengthen the party’s position by bridging Flemish regional interests with broader European objectives. Her expertise in international relations and European Union law makes her a valuable asset, particularly in navigating the complex landscape of EU politics, where she can effectively advocate for policies that align with Belgian, Flanders interests and European Union directives.

Her background may allow her to focus on critical areas such as defence, relationship with east Europe, trade, environmental policy, and digital transformation—currently pivotal in EU policy discussions. This alignment with EU priorities not only elevates the party’s relevance in these discussions but also positions Belgium and Flanders as proactive contributors rather than passive participants in the European project.

Furthermore, her experience can help VoorU promote a more integrated European approach to issues like migration, climate change, and economic recovery post-COVID-19, which are areas of acute interest and concern across the EU. By matching Marta’s international credentials with VoorU’s political agenda, the party can enhance both local autonomy and European cohesion, presenting a balanced perspective that could be attractive to voters looking for effective representation in the European Parliament. This synergy between Marta’s expertise and the party’s political stance could, therefore, not only benefit VoorU’s electoral prospects but also strengthen voice of Flemish people in Europe.

VoorU is different from other Belgian parties through its approach to governance, which involves less regulation and more personal freedom, not unlike the broader liberal values seen in other parties, yet with a distinct focus on direct engagement with community needs and local governance.

For voters in the upcoming 2024 European Parliament elections, VoorU presents an option that emphasizes practical liberalism, local empowerment, and efficient governance. This could appeal particularly to voters interested in seeing a direct impact on community issues, who favor minimal governmental interference, and who are entrepreneurial in spirit. The party’s platform may also attract voters looking for new political narratives and leadership styles due to rising disenchantment with traditional political structures in Belgium.
