The Wilmès II Government is the current minority Federal Government of Belgium, led by Prime Minister Sophie Wilmès, the first female Prime Minister of Belgium.

The creation of the Wilmès II Government occurred on 17 March 2020 and is an exact continuation of the Wilmès I Government, with the exception that the government now has full legislative powers rather than being just a caretaker government. Opposition parties sp.a, PS, Groen, Ecolo, cdH and DéFI are giving support to the government to handle the coronavirus outbreak in Belgium. The government has certain plenary powers to be able to deal with the pandemic quickly and effectively.[1]


The composition of the government is identical to that of the last composition of Wilmès I Government.
