De Croo and his co-formateur Paul Magnette, the leader of the Walloon socialists, made a joint statement after reporting to King Philippe on the coalition agreement reached earlier Wednesday. Magnette congratulated De Croo and wished him success “with the team that you will lead”. Jokingly, he added that they had drawn lots for who would be prime minister, “and Alexander won.”
The oath of the prime minister and his government will take place on Thursday, the palace reported after the visit to the king. The division of ministerial posts continues to be discussed. The members of the parties are also consulted. On the Dutch-speaking side, these are the Open Flemish Liberals and Democrats (Open Vld) of De Croo, the Christian Democrats of CD&V, Groen and the socialist party different (sp.a). The French-speaking government parties are the Parti Socialiste (PS), Ecolo and the liberal MR.
Belgium has been without a full government for 493 days. “Too long,” said De Croo, who was Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance in Sophie Wilmès’ temporary ‘corona government’. Her mandate expires on October 1.
