Sa position était délicate et son passage dans l'émission "Cash Investigation" a précipité sa chute.

L'histoire ressemblerait presque à une blague belge (oui, c'est un peu facile). Dans un communiqué publié ce mercredi, le parti écologiste Ecolo se désolidarise de son candidat, Gérald Bocken, et annule sa participation aux élections locales. Il est aussi un représentant du lobby des industriels des emballages.

L'émission Cash Investigation de mardi, sur France 2, était très attendue: elle pointait le rôle des lobbies dans la pollution aux déchets en plastique. "Vu l'incompatibilité évidente entre la défense des intérêts de cette association d'une part, notre engagement pour un environnement de qualité et notre volonté de responsabiliser les industriels en cette matière d'autre part, il a été décidé d'un commun accord que Gérald Bocken ne figurera plus sur la liste Ecolo à Rixensart", a justifié le parti. "Il n'y a pas de mal, pour vous, d'être à la fois secrétaire général d'une association qui se bat pour que l'Europe devienne propre d'ici 2030 et de l'autre côté, d'être secrétaire général du lobby des fabricants d'emballage." lui avait notamment demandé la journaliste, ce à quoi Gérald Bocker a répondu: "Le coupable de la pollution, c'est le pollueur, ce n'est pas le producteur".
