An unusual silence which foreshadowed an equally surprising choice: Béatrice Descamps, the outgoing MP (LIOT) of the 21e Northern constituency, decided not to go back. Elected in 2017, this woman, former school principal, prefers to leave her seat rather than divide the votes in a constituency held by the right and the Borlooist camp for more than twenty years.
