The German-speaking Community


The German-speaking Community exercises its powers in the communes of the province of Liège and the German-speaking area.

In the German-speaking Community, the legislative power is exercised by a Parliament and a Government. The Parliament of the German-speaking Community consists of 25 members. One of them has a seat in the federal Senate. The Parliament of the German-speaking Community is directly elected. So it consists exclusively of directly elected members.

Just like the Parliaments of the Flemish Community and the French-speaking Community, the Parliament of the German-speaking Community votes on decrees.

The executive power is exercised by the Government of the German-speaking Community. This consists of a Minister-President and three Ministers.

Both the Council and the Ministry of the German-speaking Community have their own information service and an official web site.
