Local Elections

Election time in Belgium. Unlike other countries, voting is compulsory in Belgium. So every Belgian citizen over 18 has been today to vote. The result is still out for debate however a glimpse of the future coalition govermenmt is already known.

The main Belgian parties in the run are the CD&V N-VA (Christian Democrats /Flemish), the MR (Mouvement Réformateur/ Liberals) and the PS (Socialist).

Ah, I didn't know it was compulsory in Belgium. It is in Australia too. I wonder if anywhere else?
