Expert Answer:

The main political problem in Belgium was the issue of power sharing between the Dutch speaking and French speaking people. In Belgium, 59% people speak Dutch and 40% people speak French. However, in the capital city of Brussels, 80% people speak French while 20% people speak Dutch. The minority French speaking population was rich and powerful which was resented by the Dutch speaking people.The latter got benefited by the economic policies quite late. This issue resulted in tensions between the Dutch and French speaking people in the 1950's and the 1960's.
