Following a snap general election in October 2013, the centre-right Democratic Party (DP) and two left-of-centre parties, the Socialist Workers' Party (LSAP) and the Green Party, formed a new coalition government.

Fiscal consolidation and maintaining Luxembourg's status as an international financial centre are likely to be prominent government policy objectives.

The 2015 budget and associated measures will be critical to the fiscal consolidation effort. Preparation of the budget could generate strains within the coalition, but the government is likely to endure until the 2018 election.
