What will the coming days bring?


No coalition agreement was reached last night. So wait and see when formateurs Alexander De Croo (Open VLD) and Paul Magnette (PS) can finally start the landing. If that succeeds today, then the next days will look like this.


Plenary negotiations normally resume at 9 am at the Egmont Palace. When white smoke finally emerges during the day, party headquarters gear up and invitations leave for the party conventions that could take place tomorrow night. The coalition agreement itself is distributed to party members so that they can go through it. In the meantime, the social media teams may be working overtime: they will undoubtedly all launch placards and videos to focus on what their party has brought in.


If that has not yet happened, the casting is being discussed at headquarters. In principle, the portfolios were already divided during the negotiations on Tuesday, but it is not yet clear which names the parties will put in return. It will be a difficult day for the presidents: careers are made or cracked. Those names leak out during the day, or at the latest at the party conventions that take place in the evening. The members may then speak out for or against the participation in the government of their party.

Corona forces the parties to inventiveness. For example, Open VLD goes for a fully digital conference, CD&V for a fully physical conference. Groen and SP.A combine the two: part physical, part digital. The Greens provide multiple locations in the various provinces where members can follow everything. The modalities are still being considered, but in any case – except for the Greens – it will be a struggle to get a seat in the hall. That is also a tactic, certainly at CD&V, where some discussion is expected.


In principle, the new team takes the oath on Thursday morning, followed by the government statement. Normally it takes place in the Chamber, but corona forces creativity there too. The meeting place at 2 pm will be the European Parliament, where there is enough space to physically receive all 150 MPs with sufficient distance.


The debate on the government statement, scheduled for Friday, and the vote of confidence, scheduled for Saturday, will also take place in the European Parliament in Brussels.
