PS chairman and royal formator Elio di Rupo leaves the Royal Castle in Ciergnon after an audience with Belgium's King Albert II on November 21, 2011. The politician tasked with forming a new Belgian government, Elio Di Rupo, offered to resign today from coalition talks following a deadlock over budget cuts, the royal palace said. Belgium's feuding political parties failed to seal a coalition deal today, leaving the eurozone nation without a government for 526 days amid a split over budget cuts needed to soothe jittery markets.
