Mohamed Ouriaghli

Alderman for Housing, ICT, Equal Opportunities and International Solidarity.

Mohamed Ouriaghli was born in Hasselt in 1967 but at a young age he moved to Laeken.

He is a fine example of the 'melting pot' of the cosmopolitan life in Brussels. He studies computer technology, has a first job as a construction engineer at a large company in Brussels but he's also very active in associations.

And then he makes his first steps in politics. Mohamed Ouriaghli is councilor in 1995, six years later he becomes President of the Foyer bruxellois and in 2006 Alderman of City Property and Car Fleet.

He stands for real coexistence and is very attached to Brussels. He makes publicly accessible and decent housing one of his main goals. Having a home as a property is essential for the integration and the future. His leitmotiv is that progress is only meaningful if everyone can be part of it.

Since 2009 he is also a member of the Brussels Parliament and member of the French-language Parliament of Brussels. His main concerns are housing, urban renewal, public health, public works and communications infrastructure and everything that has to do with budget, administration and international relations.
