BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Belgium’s new federal government, a center-right coalition of liberals, Christian Democrats and a Flemish regional party, will be sworn in on Saturday, the Royal Palace said on Wednesday.

French-speaking liberal Charles Michel, 38, is set to become prime minister after the incoming ruling coalition concluded marathon talks to settle the budget late on Tuesday.
