So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodbye

This might be the end of Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker.

From Deutsche Welle:

Juncker, who has served for 18 years, called an early election in July amid accusations he failed to adequately monitor the actions of the State Intelligence Service (SREL). His Christian Socialist Party – in power since 1974 – won 23 seats in Sunday’s elections, ahead of 13 each for the Liberal Party and the Socialist Party and six for the Greens Party.

The royal palace responded on Friday by calling Liberal leader Xavier Bettel to a meeting with Grand Duke Henri, who urged Bettel to form a coalition with the Socialists and the Greens in a bid to reach a slim 32-seat majority in the 60-seat parliament.
