(ADW) The DP and LSAP political parties have already had discussions together and both have arrived at a conclusion: if the three-way coalition was to go ahead and accepted, Xavier Bettel would be the next Prime Minister.

After a DP directors meeting on Monday night, Xavier Bettel made an announcement regarding the Prime Minister position:

"I had discussions with Mr. Schneider and it is agreed that, the DP would take up the post of Prime Minister."

A statement confirming this came a few minutes later from LSAP leader Etienne Schneider.
