  1. Formateur

    A formateur is a politician who is appointed by the head of state to lead the formation of a coalition government, after either a general election or the collapse of a previous government. The role of the formateur is especially important in the politics of Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Italy, Israel, and the Czech Republic. These countries have a parliamentary system, where the executive is elected by the legislature. They also use proportional representation for elections to parliament, and have a multiparty system that makes it for one party to win an outright majority improbable. There may be several combinations of parties which might form a coalition. The formateur most often comes from the largest party in the future coalition and generally becomes the new head of government if the formation succeeds. In a constitutional monarchy, this appointment is an exercise of reserve power, and is one of the rare moments when an otherwise mainly ceremonially functioning monarch still may play a significant political role. In game theory and political science, the term formateur party is used to describe the party that makes a proposal in a bargaining process, most often when modeling a government formation.
