No white smoke from Egmont Palace


The negotiators about a new government did not reach an agreement before Monday night. During the night there was no plenary meeting with the seven parties involved. The formateurs prepare a synthesis proposal on the budget by 09.00 am on Tuesday. This was learned from various sources.

The negotiators of liberals, socialists, greens and CD&V had been sitting together in the Egmont Palace in Brussels since 10 am Monday morning. It was expected that they would immediately start discussions about the budget, say the final part of the coalition agreement, but that turned out to be wrong.

The thorny theme was only broached at 8 pm, after the visit of formateurs Alexander De Croo and Paul Magnette to the Palace, but that was not a plenary meeting either. Instead of negotiating with all parties around the table, the formateurs opted for bilateral talks with the parties individually.

It can be heard from various sources that there would be no more plenary discussion on the budget on Monday night, but that the formateurs are working out a proposal for synthesis. This will be submitted for discussion from 9 a.m. on Tuesday. Time is running out if the negotiating parties want to have a government by October 1. In addition to the budget, the entire coalition agreement must also be given a second reading. And afterwards, the agreement must get the green light from the seven party congresses and the powers within the new team must be divided.
