About the Show


MONDAY 9 OCTOBER

Luxembourg will get a new government. The Christian Social People’s party CSV is the clear winner of these elections and will definitely be part of the coalition. In all four districts, the CSV counts the highest share of votes. Keeping the same number of seats in parliament, 21, the CSV benefits from the high losses of the Green party Dei Greng.

The Greens are the biggest loser of this election, keeping only 4 of their 9 seats in parliament. With the Greens having declined this much, the current government coalition can’t reach a majority – although the Democratic Party DP and the Socialist Workers Party LSAP have slightly improved their results compared to the last parliamentary elections in 2018, the LSAP winning one more mandate and the DP two. The CSV is likely to have the lead on the coalition building. They can reach a majority either together with the DP or with the LSAP.

The right wing Alternative Reform Party ADR as well as the Pirates have each won 1 seat. The left party Dei Lenk is able to keep their 2 seats despite losing a fourth of their voters.

The day before the election, activists used the momentum to call for more rights for people with disabilities. Five organisations demonstrated in front of parliament to demand greater autonomy for disabled people as well as increased inclusion in schools.

The foreign affairs ministry has issued a travel warning for Israel after the latest escalation. The government strongly advises Luxembourgers against any travel to Israel and the region. Those who are currently in the region should register on the platform Luxembourgers abroad LamA and report their presence to the foreign affairs ministry’s consular department. Several tour groups are still in Israel. According to minister Jean Asselborn, they are safe in their hotels and get advice from the Belgian embassy which represents Luxembourg in Israel.
