Gosh I can't belief it

The king has assigned a "formateur" (someone who has to form a government, as opposed to mediators, informators, negotiators etc  who are supposed to check the different point of views and prepare a consensus among coalition partners).  


Did you get that?  A bit more than 11 months after our federal elections, we have a formateur.  The honour went to Elio Di Rupo, president of the Wallonian socialists and winner of the election in the south of the country.


But hold your breath just yet, he's first going to write some texts and consult everyone extensively basically because he has thrown the 2-months work of the christian democrat Beke straight to the waste bin last week.  

Hmm what's in a title, right. But still....a formateur. I have to get used to the idea.  Who would have thought we'd have a formateur now . I didn't see that one coming at all.
