The Vivaldi coalition will start this legislature with the construction of two centers to lock up people without a right of residence pending their forced expulsion. That writes De Tijd.

An agreement has been reached between the coalition partners on a closed center in Zandvliet near Antwerp (200 places) and Jumet near Charleroi (144).

The closed centers are particularly sensitive to the French-speaking Greens. After the coalition formation, it was heard in green circles that extra capacity is certainly not a certitude. But government sources confirm to the newspaper that there is a deal.

Although there was a striking adjustment in the last night of the negotiations. Zandvliet – on the territory of Antwerp mayor Bart De Wever (N-VA) – which was originally supposed to get 144 places, now gets 200. Jumet near Charleroi, where ex-formateur Paul Magnette wears the sash, drops from 200 to 144.
