Brandt was prone to depression and would withdraw from the political scene, leaving others to deal with the detail of politics. He was hospitalized for an operation on his throat and the tabloid press also made big news of Brandt’s love affairs.

A founder member of the European Coal and Steel Community, its economy specialized until the 1960s in the production of raw materials, coal and steel, and industrial products. Since the decline of heavy industry, Belgium’s main exports have been machinery and electrical equipment, chemicals, vehicles, metals and diamonds. It also has a growing service economy with Belgium’s capital, Brussels, hosting a number of international organizations, including the European Union (EU) and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

The opposition sought to defeat Brandt’s government in 1972 through a constructive vote of no confidence. This attempt narrowly failed: the CDU/CSU needed 249 votes but won just 247.

Brandt’s status in Germany grew and the SPD’s campaign slogan for the 1972 election was simply ‘Wählt Willy Brandt’ (Vote for Willy Brandt). The SPD managed to gain the status of the largest party in the Bundestag and formed another coalition with the liberal FDP.
