With a bit of luck, we'll have a new (!) federal government after more than a year. In May last year (2019) there were general elections. But they don't follow any logic. The results of the vote clearly gave extreme right a majority. However, the more conservative parties in our country couldn't agree with that - with the result they kept on talking and talking. More than a year!
Now at last they've found 7 parties which can agree to work together. Flemish and Walloon, but with a majority of Walloon. That sits painfully with extreme right, which wants Flanders to be independent. But the Prime Minister will most likely be Flemish - Belgian compromise.
Right now the 7 parties have been sitting together to discuss the details (!). Which means - it's all about the money! Each party wants something - like a minimal pension of 1500,00 € or more money for the police, education, health care,... When they'd grant everything, they'd talk about around 11 billion. And there's no money for that. So they have to drop some of their wishes - like saying the 1500 pension is untaxed, and the end result would be around 1200 €
We'll see what happens!
