BRUSSELS – The former leader of the Belgian branch of the US Republican Party on Thursday urged fellow party members to bite the bullet and vote for the Democrats in this year's presidential elections.

In an exclusive interview with Expatica, Christian de Fouloy said that Republicans should not vote to re-elect the current President because George W Bush had lied to the American people about links between Iraq and the al-Qaeda terror movement.

"I decided that I could no longer stand up for what this administration was standing for," he said.

De Fouloy is so angry with the current Republican President that he is setting up a group called 'Republicans for Kerry Europe.' 

The organisation has the express aim of persuading expat Republicans based in Europe to vote for Democratic candidate John Kerry this November, De Fouloy explained.

The move has drawn sharp criticism from Bush loyalists, but De Fouloy insisted his conscience was clear.

"I feel what I'm doing is patriotic, it's for our country," he said.
