Verhofstadt to resign as Prime Minister on March 20
PM Verhofstadt confirmed his intention to leave before Easter at a meeting of party chairs Monday evening.
On Maundy Thursday Verhofstadt will pass the torch on to Yves Leterme. Leterme can then go to the King with his team of ministers to be sworn in, and his government declaration is planned to take place in parliament that Thursday afternoon.
