Multiparty instability?

A little factual note to ponder. The composition of the Luxembourg Parliament.

The Left 1.9 -1.4 0 -1
Communist Party of Luxembourg (KPL) 0.9 N/A 0 N/A

When did you last hear of a governance crisis in the Duchy? Just wondering.

  1. the links lead to this post again and again and again and again threatening the time-space continuum of the Maltese blogosfera (hah!). what kind of heathen sorcery is this?!

    (have they really got a party called “The Left” or did you just make that up?)

  2. An underhand attempt at adding extra hits? Not really. Just extreme incompetence on my part. The table was cut and pasted from the Wikipedia article called “politics of luxembourg”. Maybe the table on that site might have proper links. In a country where people are called Losch (and recently I discovered a certain Gerry Osch – no kidding) what’s wrong with a party called The Left?

    P.S. Good luck with party sites… most of them tend to give preference to German.
