Liberal-led coalition no longer has majority after more than 95% of votes counted and CSV is set to be largest party

Luxembourg’s legislative election results have left the liberal-led coalition without a majority, making it likely the country’s long-dominant centre-right party will gain influence.

Opinion polls indicated that the centre-right Christian Social People’s party (CSV), which was led for 19 years by Jean-Claude Juncker, a former president of the European Commission, was on course to be the largest party and would end Xavier Bettel’s 10 years as prime minister of a three-party coalition. Bettel is only the second non-CSV leader Luxembourg has had since the second world war.
