Template:Infobox Belgian Political Party Template:Green politics sidebar Ecolo (which officially stands for Écologistes Confédérés pour l'organisation de luttes originales ["Ecologists confederated for the organisation of original struggles"], but in reality is a shorthand for "ecology" or "ecologist") is a French-speaking Belgian green political party in Wallonia, Brussels and the German-speaking Community of Belgium. It currently participates in the Brussels regional government.
The party was part of the outgoing federal coalition, but it resigned before the 2003 general election, and was promptly decimated by a resurgent Parti Socialiste. They however made quite a comeback in the 2007 general election, though without reaching their 1999 peak popularity. In the 10 June 2007 general elections, the party won 8 out of 150 seats in the Chamber of Representatives and 2 out of 40 seats in the Senate.
