Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As you'll understand, in this kind of district-based system, polls of voting intentions are rather difficult to interpret. The most recent poll breaks down the Flemish-speaking community, the French-speaking community in Brussels, and the French-speaking community outside Brussels. Which brings us a bit closer. But in order to know what's really going to happen you'd need to know what the polls are in each individual district.

In Spain we have the same system and you hardly ever see a poll broken down by constituency (it would be 50 times more expensive to run such a poll). That's why the results of the recent local elections were used as a proxy by some people (including myself).

Can the last politician to go out the revolving door please turn the lights off?
