Belgium federal and regional elections results

On 9 June, Belgium held federal and regional elections to elect all members of the Chamber of Representatives as well as Regional and Community Parliaments. 

ALDE Party member Mouvement Réformateur claimed victory thanks to important seat gains in the Federal Parliament (20 seats, +6), Walloon Parliament (26 seats, +6) and Brussels Parliament (20 seats, +7). 

As the largest party in the regions of Brussels and Wallonia, MR will now take the lead in rapidly forming government coalitions. 

“This is a historic moment. Never before has the Mouvement Réformateur been able to take first place in a regional election in French-speaking Belgium,” said party leader Georges-Louis Bouchez. 

“The MR is the leading political party in the capital without being part of a cartel. This victory is not a gift, it's a responsibility. It now gives us a duty to implement our programme.” 

Meanwhile, Open Vld contested regional elections in Flanders and Brussels, winning nine and two seats respectively. In the federal elections,  the party obtained 5.45% of the popular vote and seven seats in the Chamber of Representatives. 

Overall, the liberal partnership between MR and Open Vld came out as the most popular political family in the Brussels Parliament, retaining 22 seats out of 89.
