Wilmes, who is seen as an ally of Michel’s and was first elected to parliament in 2014, was chosen by a ministerial committee.


 

Belgian Budget Minister Sophie Wilmes was chosen for the country’s new caretaker prime minister — a first for a woman, the current premier Charles Michel said on Saturday.

 

The 44-year-old still has to be sworn in by King Philippe, who is expected to announce the nomination formally on Sunday at the earliest.

 

Earlier on Friday, Michel had said, who is all set to take over as European Council president on December 1, that he intended to step down by the beginning of November “at the latest”.
