Belgium’s PM Charles Michel submits resignation amid migration row

Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel has offered his resignation just days after one of his main coalition partners quit in a row over migration. Michel lost the backing of the nationalist New Flemish Alliance over his support for a UN migration deal signed in Marrakech last week. His move follows angry demonstrations in Brussels against the UN pact. Michel has told King Philippe of his decision. The king has yet to announce whether he will accept the resignation. Michel took office in October 2014 after forming a right-wing coalition, becoming at 38 the country’s youngest prime minister since 1841.
