Luxembourg government coalition partner calls for new elections

BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The junior coalition partner in the Luxembourg government led by Jean-Claude Juncker has called for new elections, after a parliamentary committee said Juncker failed to curb abuse of power by the secret service.

"We ask the government to intervene with the head of state to clear the way for new elections," Alex Bodry, the president of the Socalist coalition partner, told the Luxembourg parliament on Wednesday.
