BHV split after almost half a century

Thu 15/09/2011 - 10:04 The 8 parties negotiating a state reform have finally reached a first accord, on how the constituency of Brussels-Halle-Vilvoorde will be split. They also struck a deal on the three burgomasters of the Flemish municipalities around Brussels with language facilities. However, this being said, there is a still a long way to go for negotiators. The talks will continue this afternoon, with a number of things on the agenda like the transfers of powers to the regions and the financing laws.

The Brussels-Halle-Vilvoorde constituency (BHV) has been a thorn in the eye of the Flemish parties for decades, as it allows voters living in the Flemish area around Brussels to vote for Francophone candidates in Brussels.

The Formateur Elio di Rupo has resigned from his post.

He has visited the King who is convalescing at Ciergnon.

So tired of this all.
They must concentrate on big problems like the economic crisis, the unemployment, the immigration.

I wish our King many courage and good luck!!! I think it's very exhausting for him!!!
Despite all the dificulties you face, learn what really matters in life, and never give up hope.

It took eighteen hours - "une nuit blanche" - a sleepless night.

Now things should fall into place, and hopefully the money markets can wake up on Monday morning with something positive to relate.....
