CD&V have announced that the current Federal Vice Prime Minister and Minister for Economy, Kris Peeters (CD&V) will head their list for the European elections. This is a seen as a convenient exit for Kris Peeters after losing the local elections in Antwerp against president of the N-VA and current Mayor of Antwerp, Bart De Wever (N-VA).

Ivo Belet (CD&V) is low down on the list and very unlikely to be re-elected. 


Benoit Lutgen has stepped down as President of cdH (the French speaking Christian Democrats) and will head the list for the EP elections.
