Il était alors présenté comme "très populaire dans la communauté turque" (et aujourd'hui ?)
Il était alors présenté comme "musulman" : un musulman qui fait voter un règlement d'ordre intérieur d'école discriminatoire contre les filles musulmanes quand il interdit le port du voile aux élèves. Souvenez-vous : http://1210sjtn.blogspot.be/2014/09/lycee-guy-cudell.html

14. (U) Among the new generation of Belgian Muslims who are clearly on their way up in Belgium's politics and public life is the impressive young Turkish-Belgian Emir Kir. A francophone socialist, Kir is Brussels Region Secretary of State for Environmental Issues, i.e., head of the patronage-rich ministry that handles refuse removal and the cleaning of public parks and monuments. A charismatic up-and-comer, Kir sees himself - and wants to be seen - as Belgian, not Muslim. In this, he is echoed by many other Muslim politicians, a group that mixes well with others of the country's political class. Asked recently if he had to choose between Turkish and Belgian citizenship for reasons of military duty, he said he would choose the latter. Despite this attachment, Kir nonetheless attends to his ancestral constituents at Turkish community festivals.
