No sex until government in Belgium

The Belgium negotiators are not allowed to have sex, until there is a new government in Belgium.

The Belgian Senator, Arleen Temmerman, announced this to all negotiators.

The senator’s idea follows the example of Kenya. When the negotiations for a new government dragged on for a long time in 2009. The Women’s movements in Kenya called the women of the negotiators to stop having sex.

“A week later, the document was on the table, ” said Temmerman in the Belgian newspaper De Morgen.

In Belgium they are already negotiating for about 7 months to form a new government.

Recently one of Belgium’s best-known actors, Benoit Poelvoorde, urged his fellow citizens not to shave again until the country finally forms a government.

Belgians went to polls in June last year but an inconclusive result has left them with a caretaker government.
