    King Philippe accepted the resignation of the government of Prime Minister Charles Michel on Friday and asked it to stay on as a caretaker administration, the Royal Palace stated in a communique. The Belgian king asked the country’s political officials and institutions to provide an appropriate response to the economic, budgetary and international challenges facing it, and to the population’s expectations, particularly in the social and environmental fields.

    He tasked the Speaker of the Chamber of Representatives and the Prime Minister respectively with providing him, at regular intervals, with a progress report on the conduct of daily business.
