Even Belgium's interim government is in doubt

The French-speaking Christian Democrats formally declined caretaker Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt's invitation to join an interim government. That led the French-speaking Socialists to say they could not join either, denying the emergency government a legislative majority.
"We are slowly turning into a problem country. Our international reputation is suffering from this," party leader Bart Somers said. "You hear people complain about the loss of purchasing power. You need a government to fix that."

Verhofstadt has said he plans to leave politics once a new government is formed. Finally we have a politician doing what the people want! STORY
