The parliamentary group of the Christian Social People's Party demands that Prime Minister Xavier Bettel should return to giving his State of the Nation speech in spring.
In a letter to the president of the Chamber of Deputies, the co-chairs of the CSV's parliamentary group, Martine Hansen and Gilles Roth, state that the regulations of the Chamber of Deputies stipulate that the State of the Nation debate should generally take place during the first semester.
In the past three years, however, the debate always took place in autumn, only a few weeks prior to the debates about the new budget. According to the CSV, this is "politically inappropriate". For this reason, the opposition party demands that the Prime Minister should return to giving his State of the Nation speech in the first semester.
