Xavier Bettel officially in charge of forming new Luxembourg government


Xavier Bettel held discussions with the Grand Duke on Friday at 2pm and, as expected, was appointed the position of “Formateur” meaning that he is in charge of forming the new government. Bettel then announced that negotiations for the future coalition programme will begin «on Tuesday at 9am at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs”. The role of “Formateur” means that Bettel is in charge of forming a new government «by the end of November early December”.
