Some 300 'Yellow Vest' activists marched through Brussels on Saturday, protesting against the government.

The political situation in Belgium remains uncertain after Prime Minister Charles Michel lost his parliamentary majority on December 9 when the New Flemish Alliance party (N-VA) left the ruling coalition due to objections to the UN migration pact, and then subsequently lost a confidence vote after attempting to remain in office at the head of a minority government.

Michel remains in office as the head of a caretaker government until elections which are scheduled to take place in May at the request of Belgium's King.
