Round we go again

King appoints 12th person in latest attempt to form Belgian government

After the leaders to Belgium’s two largest parties gave up (unsurprisingly) on trying to form a coalition, the next person to have a go will be the Flemish Liberal leader, Egbert Lachaert.

The clock is ticking a bit, now, though:

By 17 September, however, the special powers granted by the parliament to the caretaker government of Sophie Wilmès will expire.

It’s always a bad idea to make predictions, but I’m guessing that new elections will soon be on the way. Watch this space.
