Context of the peer review of Luxembourg

The 2013 general elections brought sweeping changes. Indeed, the coalition formed after the election replaced the Christian Social People’s Party (CSV), traditionally the dominant coalition force in Luxembourg. The new coalition government, comprising the centre-right Democratic Party, and two centre-left parties, the Socialist Workers’ Party (LSAP) and the Greens, suffered a setback in 2015 after 78% of voters rejected a proposal put to referendum that same year to grant voting rights to foreigners in national elections. In addition, the coalition’s small parliamentary majority, and ideological differences between its members, limit its room for manoeuvre for reform and is a source of potential tension. Nevertheless, the impact of this delicate political situation on Luxembourg’s co-operation policy is minimal given the broad political consensus on this issue.
