Pierre-Yves Monette compared the present period to political crises in the seventies and eighties. "King Boudewijn was also fed up with the political stalemates at that time. That's a public secret. However, he was not fed up with being the king of the Belgians. He was only sad to see his country struggling and failing to find stability."
"And like so many compatriots, King Albert finds that it's been enough after almost 500 days of talks and discussions. However, you make a clear distinction between "being fed up with the crisis" and "considering abdicating." As far as I can see, the king has no intention whatsoever of leaving his throne."
