The Belgian liberal Reformist movement nominated incumbent Prime Minister Charles Michel for the second term on Wednesday in light of the parliamentary elections in May
"We have one candidate - Charles Michel," Georges-Louis Bouchez, who is responsible for the party's campaign, told reporters.
Michel's Cabinet currently serves as a caretaker government until the elections, slated for May 26. In December, the New Flemish Alliance (N-VA) quit the ruling coalition over differences on migration.
As result, Michel submitted his resignation to Belgian King Philippe as a no-confidence motion crushed his hopes for a minority government. The king has accepted Michel's resignation, but asked the incumbent government to serve until May.
