Belgium's PM-in-waiting leaves hospital

Belgium's PM-in-waiting leaves hospital

Belgian Vice Premier Yves Leterme has left the hospital after two weeks of treatment for bleeding in the stomach.
Leterme, 47, is slated to take over as prime minister next month.
A Dutch-speaking Christian Democrat, Leterme was the main winner in June 10 national elections. Disputes over sharing power with Francophone politicians prevented him from forming a government with the Liberals, plunging Belgium into a six-month political crisis.
Standing Prime Minister Guy Verhofstadt stepped in and is running an interim government until March 23, when Leterme is scheduled to take over.
