Answer by Student
Belgium adopted a power-sharing model to accommodate its cultural and regional diversity by the following ways:
- Constitution prescribes that the number of Dutch and French-speaking ministers shall be equal in the central government . So that no single community can make decisions unilaterally.
- Many powers of the Central Government have been given to State Governments of the two regions of the country. The State Governments are not subordinate to the Central Government.
- Creating a community government that is elected by people belonging to one language community and has the power to make decisions on cultural, educational and language-related issues .
