Belgium is holding parliamentary elections which could bring the country closer to a constitutional split.
The Flemish separatist party the New Flemish Alliance (NVA) is expected to do well in the vote.
Its leader Bart De Wever supports dividing the country in two, Dutch-speaking Flanders and French-speaking Wallonia.
However, a split bringing an end to Belgium would not happen immediately.
Belgian governments are required to be made up of a bi-lingual coalition, but this is the first federal election from which a party advocating the end of Belgium could emerge the outright winner.
