The Parliament of Wallonia (French: Parlement de Wallonie), formerly the Walloon Parliament (Parlement wallon) and previously the Walloon Regional Council (Conseil régional wallon), is the Parliament of Wallonia, one of the self-governing Regions of Belgium with Flanders and the Brussels-Capital Region. The parliament building, the former Hospice Saint-Gilles, is situated in Namur, the capital of Wallonia, at the symbolic confluence of the Meuse and the Sambre, the two main rivers of the most inhabited parts of Wallonia, the Sillon industriel. On the other side of the Meuse, facing the Parliament, is the Élysette, the seat of the Walloon government.

Composition

All members of the Parliament of Wallonia are also members of the Parliament of the French Community, except for German-speaking members (currently Monika Dethier-Neumann and Edmund Stoffels) who represent the German-speaking population and are advisory members of the Parliament of the German-speaking Community.

The parliament exercises several functions:

  • It discusses and passes decrees, and they can take initiatives to draw them up. After this, decrees are sanctioned and promulgated by the Walloon Government.
  • It controls the Walloon Government. Control is exercised via the vote.
  • It ratifies the international treaties linked to its powers.
