"Belgium no longer works. It is a nation that has failed." This loud statement recently came from Bart De Wever, a candidate for Prime Minister of this country and leader of the Nationalist Party The New Flemish Alliance. Thus, one of the leading politicians of Belgium acknowledged that the country that hosts the headquarters of the EU and NATO is on the verge of a collapse.
Parliamentary elections were held in Belgium in June, but the government of the country has been temporarily chaired by the Flemish Christian Democrat Yves Leterme. The attempts to form a new cabinet are failing due to the differences between politicians representing the country's two national communities - the Flemish and Walloon (French).
