Guy Verhofstadt | Speaker Biography

Guy Verhofstadt is a Belgian politician with a significant presence in national and European politics. He began his political career as a student activist and later became the President of the Liberal Flemish Students' Union in Ghent. Verhofstadt held various positions within the Party for Freedom and Progress (PVV) and the Flemish Liberals and Democrats (VLD) before serving as the Prime Minister of Belgium from 1999 to 2008.

During his tenure as Prime Minister, Verhofstadt implemented reforms such as legalizing same-sex marriage, euthanasia, and the private use of marijuana. He also played a key role in renaming the PVV to the VLD to attract centrist voters. After leaving office, Verhofstadt joined the European Parliament in 2009, where he continued to advocate for European unity and integration.

Verhofstadt is known for his firm stance on European issues and has been vocal in his criticism of Brexit. He has authored several books on European politics, including "The United States of Europe" (2006), "The New Age of Empires" (2008), and "Emerging from the Crisis: How Europe can Save the World" (2009).

Outside of politics, Verhofstadt is married to Dominique Verkinderen and they have two children, Charlotte and Louis.
