Abstract

Luxembourg held snap elections on 20 October following the collapse of the previous government led by Jean-Claude Juncker and the Christian Social People’s Party (CSV). Martine Huberty assesses the results of the election and discusses the dramatic coalition negotiations which look set to leave the CSV frozen out of government, despite holding the largest share of seats in parliament. If an alternative coalition is formed between the Liberals, Social Democrats and Greens, it would mean the end of Juncker’s 18 year reign as Prime Minister, and constitute only the second time in Luxembourg’s post-war history that the CSV has not been in power.
