Van Parys was first chosen to the Belgian Chamber of Representatives in 1985, on a CVP ticket. He was chiefly Minister of Justice in the second Dehaene government (1998-1999).

Van Parys was part of the 1988 parliamentary commission looking into the "ways that banditry and terrorism suppression are organized [in Belgium]." Together with Philippe Laurent of the Parti social chrétien he wrote the main report that detailed the results.

He was elected as a member of the Belgian Senate in 2007.[1]
