Luxembourg’s outgoing Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker got the support of the CSV to lead the party’s group in new parliament. Previous Minister of Sustainable Development Claude Wiseler will be Juncker’s deputy.

Former Prime Minister of the Grand Duchy noted that CSV will be strong opposition in the new parliament, but will not be destructive. «We do not have a plan for revenge, but we will hold its ground in the dispute. We want to function as a credible alternative party to the majority. In opposition, we were thrown not by the will of the voters, but by the decision of the new government coalition».
