Belgium’s 250 leaderless days

This week’s news item, adapted for MEC from a news article originally published in the Guardian Weekly, is about a world record that Belgium has broken – 250 days without a government. The country has been without a government since the elections in June 2010.

You can find this story in the News Items section on your Work Area screen.
