Belgium swears in new PM

Belgium's King Albert has sworn in a new government, finally ending the
country's nine months of political deadlock. The new Prime Minister is Yves
Leterme, the Flemish Christian Democrat, who emerged from last June's elections
the winner.

Check this out.

He will lead a five-party coalition.

Five? That's three too many! I kid. If anything, our system should be more like theirs. If parties are going to dominate, give us more than two.
