Bart De Wever wishes he could be The King in the North, a fictional character in a fantasy novel by American author George R. R. Martin.
Sitting on the famous iron throne, Antwerp’s major and the leader of the N-VA, smiles at the camera. An inscription above his head completes the poster: “The King in the North”.
With this image halfway between parody and megalomania, Bart De Wever has announced his candidacy for the post of Minister-President of the Flemish Region.
The commentary “Brace yourselves, Bartje is coming” also refers to the battle for the supreme post in the north of the country.
