23h35: Political scientist Bouteca points out that Belgium already had minority governments,  “but it never became a success”

Through BELGA  , political scientist  Nicolas Bouteca (UGent) illustrates that Belgium never worked well with a minority government. The late  Leo Tindemans and the late Gaston Eyskens (both CVP) led minority governments in 1974 and 1958, but they quickly lost out .  “In the Scandinavian countries, [and minority cabinets] are more common, but in Belgium it is not in the tradition.”

  2. Looks like the UN and the EU overreach is bringing about up expected consequences.

    The left is real good at ignoring the people.

  3. Belgian coalition government loses majority as N-VA partners walk out
