Today, Grand Duke Henri welcomed Xavier Bettel, mayor of Luxembourg and leader of the liberal Democratic Party (DP), for yet another audience at the palais. In his capacity as head of state, the Grand Duke appointed Mr Bettel as the formateur which means that he is in charge of forming a new government. He is expected to form a coalition with the socialist LSAP and the Green party. During their meeting, Mr Bettel and Grand Duke Henri also talked about the political, economic and social situation of the country.
After the meeting with Luxembourg's future prime minister, the Grand Duke also held an audience with a delegation of participants of a meeting of the the Council of the Notariats of the European Union (CNUE) which is currently taking place in the Grand Duchy.
