Luxembourg's Grand Duke Henri has requested that the government remain in office until the formation of a new government.

The Grand Duke made the request when he met with Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker on Monday, a day after the latter's CSV party won in the general elections.

Grand Duke Henri instructed Juncker to continue to deal with “current and urgent measures” within economic and financial affairs affecting the country.
